Outside Description

Axe is on the end of the row of the three lodges, so it is very secluded and tucked away from all others. Outside of the lodge is a decked area for relaxing, or al fresco dining with a table and chairs, which has stunning views of the countryside. The lodge backs onto the woodland walk, and the dining area and bedrooms have views over our meadow.

Downstairs Description

Axe Lodge offers a beautiful escape for two people, or a couple with a baby. It is the smaller of the lodges, and is simply charming. Like the other lodges, there is wonderful open plan living space, offering everything that is required for your stay, including a well-equipped kitchen, cosy lounge, and dining area.

The double bedroom is tastefully decorated and furnished, and the bathroom is bright and modern.
