We enjoyed our stay here.
The plus sides.
The maintenance staff were very helpful.
The accommodation is spacious. The hot tub a bonus. Kitchen area large. Bedrooms nice.
Mainly minor niggles. Dirty plates had been put back in the cupboard. Our bin lid was broken. Not quite as luxurious as we expected but still good value and in a lovely location.
chilled out and down with nature!

We had a fantastic time in the Norbury Lodge. Spending your days walking and watching nature right on your doorstep, then spending evenings lounging in a hot tub with owls hooting overhead - what a weekend!
Great modern cottage, ideal for a group of friends for the weeke

This is our second trip to the Ramshorn estate and we will come back again. Lovely modern and open plan cottage and the hot tub really added something extra, although it was quite cold in November! Recommended for large families, large group of friends etc. The cottage was furnished to a high standard and the log fire made it feel very relaxing. Only thing we'd suggest, is make the lights outside sensor-driven and not on all the time, sometimes it was a little too bright next to the downstairs bedrooms.
