We stayed in Willow Lodge at Wighill Manor Lodges Friday 16th to Friday 23rd January 2015.
This lodge has a spacious but cosy open plan kitchen/living/dining room, certainly big enough for 2 people (two person lodge). The kitchen is equipped with everything you could possibly need, including oven, hob, large fridge/freezer, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine, kettle, toaster and all kitchen cutlery and crockery. There is a dining table with two chairs, a living room with a coffee table, arm chair, two seater sofa, large flat screen TV, DVD player, stereo system where you can plug in your phone to play music, and radio. There is also an electric fireplace, which was wonderful, as it looked like there was a roaring fire next to you. The bathroom had both a large shower cubicle, and a large double ended bath. Towels were provided, although bring extra towels for the hot tub. Outside there is decking, chairs and table, and hot tub, although we didn’t get much use out of this due to the weather being so cold. We did try out the hot tub one night though, and it was lovely and warm and very clean and well maintained.
The whole lodge was spotlessly clean and everything was arranged perfectly. There was parking right outside the lodge, loads of space between the lodges, open fields around the lodges, and beautiful views, along with sheep just behind the fence near the lodges. It was very picturesque, and very peaceful and quiet. We couldn’t fault a single thing at all. It is the perfect place to go if you just want to get away from everything, and have some peace and quiet.
Something that might be important to some people is that there is no wifi in the lodges. For us this wasn’t a problem, however it would have been useful to research places to go in the area while we were there, directions, prices, times and phone numbers etc.
We will definitely be returning in the future. It was a perfect week in a perfect place. We highly recommend it.
