"Lovely cottage, very warm. Mixed weather with sun, frost, rain and snow!! Good walks around the village and in the forest. Thanks to Judith and Tanja for another lovely stay in one of your lodges, First class! "

"This was our 3rd stay at Rymore Wood Lodge and it was clean and comfortable as usual. A perfect place to relax in. Each year it seems to get better and better and the addition of the feeder cam enabled us to watch the Pine Marten and Badgers each evening, which was the icing on the cake. The day time wildlife didnt disappoint either with Red Squirrels, Crested tit and 16 Brambling all at one time! Hopefully we'll return for our 4th stay next year! "

"First class house, very welcoming and cosy. Great selection of welcome gifts, very thoughtful. Played board games by the fire each night and great walks nearby for the dog! No doubt we will be back soon! Thank you "
