Absolutely amazing place to stay a warm welcome nothing to much trouble . The whole house is beautiful with a stunning view. We stayed in the Linney which is a log cabin there aren\'t any pictures in the web site which is a shame as its beautiful beds are very comfy and there is enough room to enjoy your stay.

Lovely B&b In Fabulous Countryside
We had a lovely stay in the Balcony room at Summer Lodge. It exceeded our expectations, the photo\'s don\'t do the room justice. Windows all round from which to view the countryside, very comfortable king size bed, enormous bathroom, tea/coffee facilities and tv.

Tim the owner was very welcoming and helpful, booking us into the local pub for dinner and giving us directions for the 15 minute walk across the fields.

Highly recommended.

A Haven Of Peace And Tranquility (and Handy For River Cottage)
We stayed for an anniversary weekend and felt suitably spoiled. Lovely accommodation in a log cabin amid newly mown lawns, a deck to sit out on with a view of rolling green farmland and not a person or car in sight, a splendid huge and comfortable bed, well appointed bathroom, tasty breakfast and a friendly and helpful host.

Beautiful And Friendly In The Village
We stayed two nights in the Linney log cabin and it was more. Good sized warm and cozy room (crawling baby friendly), well decorated with a raised deck overlooking a very scenic property and farming valley. Host Tim was very friendly and helpful, provided a good full breakfast to order and made bookings for the local pub for dinner - a very sound recommendation. In short, love it.

Peace And Tranquility
Tricky to find, but so worth it. A stroll across the fields to the local village pub for an excellent evening meal, and plenty of space in our suite away from the house for Claire\'s saxophone practice. Our hosts were so helpful, and the breakfast was of the highest standard. Highly recommended.

Summer Cottage Short Break
Beautiful old cottage and gardens. Our room was lovely. Breakfast left you guessing a little but beautifully presented once explained and delivered.

Thank you Tim

What A Lovely Bonus To Our River Cottage Visit.
I found a link to Summer Lodge when booking 4 of us into a Saturday evening visit to River Cottage HQ. I am so glad I did because we had a 2 night stay at Summer Lodge and it made the whole weekend an absolute delight. Tim and Ade are wonderful hosts, Summer Lodge is a beautiful home is set in such a glorious peaceful spot. If you are in this area for any reason STAY AT SUMMER LODGE! The Balcony Room would be my personal recommendation. Steve & Jan Isle of Wight

Response from Hotel
Hi Steve Thankyou very much for your review,sorry about the delay in replying,we have been really busy!

So glad you enjoyed your stay with us.

Spotless, Well Presented, Great Host
I stayed here overnight as I was working nearby the next day.

I stayed in the garden room - lovely room, very clean, well presented, nice and roomy and great shower! Host Tim was welcoming and friendly.

I would say that this would be an excellent place for peace and quiet and from which you could explore the local area as a tourist, or just as a lovely and quiet weekend getaway.

Thanks for looking after us during our very brief stay!

Summer Lodge is set in beautiful countryside. The balcony room has amazing panaromic views. The room is big with a huge bathroom and lots of storage. The cooked breakfast is freshly made and grease free. Very enjoyable. The owners are very friendly and welcoming. Offering suggestions where to eat. A recommendation in the village was super. Overall a magical stay
