Stunning retreat

We have just returned from a weekend at Deer Lodge. We were made to feel welcome right from the moment we arrived. Steve and Kellie had brought my husband a cake for his birthday which was very thoughtful. The Lodge had all the amenities we needed. The hot tub was amazing, especially when you can sit in it and look out at the grounds. In the grounds, there is table and chairs and fire pits dotted around. We saw plenty of wildlife. We saw the deer, squirrels, the adorable baby foxes and their pet sheep and dog. If your looking for a romantic getaway that is peaceful and beautiful scenery then this is the place for you.

Romantic spectacular retreat

Secret romantic hideaway, which is situated in a very quiet and secluded location. Kellie and Steven are excellent hosts, who were both very attentive and welcoming. The property sits away from the road, with acres of land as it’s back garden. Deer lodge is stylishly modern with an homely feel to it; which is very warm and cosy. Lots of light throughout as their are windows in every room, with french doors that leads to your own private patio that has its own hot tub.... We will both miss being in the hot tub under the stars while drinking prosecco, the added robes and slippers that was supplied made it special. We loved the retro record player and vinyls to choose.. There was also board games to choose from, such as monopoly, scrabble, uno etc You do also have a tv in the lounge, with an abundance of shows to select from, as it includes Netflix and amazon prime ... Very well equipped inside with all the needs, such as microwave oven , coffee machine , all the utensils you will need .. toaster , kettle , ironing board and hairdryer. Very comfortable bed in the bedroom, walk in shower in the bathroom. We were also delighted to find some chocolate and cider in the fridge on arrival, even more so the mince pies 🙂 There are also deers on the property, which you will find within the grounds, also outside is a fire pit with seating, and a swing from a tree. We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay, we will be back - maybe in the summer? Dean and Fawne

Tranquil Retreat!

From the moment we arrived we felt relaxed, this little lodge is in such a peaceful location. Deer Lodge is exceptional, it offers everything you need and would expect from 5 star accommodion. The finishing touches such as the homemade scones, Dorset chocolate and cider really were a lovely touch. Kellie and Steve have created a perfect holiday setting and we will definitely be back.
