This was one of the loveliest and luxurious rentals we have stayed in. What a gorgeous private location with everything we could possibly need. A great welcome package, daily maintenance of the hot tub and most importantly, a glorious view and privacy. We will be back, thank you very much.

We have just had a week in the Turnstone. The location of the lodge is spot on. Very peaceful and a great base . We have had quite a few lodge holidays but this lodge is by far the best. Very roomy, very clean, very well equipped. We even said we could live there permanently! Met the owner and her little dog, and two naughty lambs!!!! Very friendlyRead more. There are no negatives at all. We are thinking of booking a week next May but need to think about the price increase first. Thanks for a brilliant week Hide
