The Lodge has a fully fitted kitchen with everything you may need to cook a meal, share a bottle of wine, make a picnic and clear up afterwards! A full sized dishwasher is built in, with washing tablets supplied, and a large fridge freezer will hold all the food you will ever need whilst you are staying at The Lodge. If you do want to wash up old school style, you can watch the birds out of the window in front of the sink, playing on the mulberry tree and in the blackberry bush hedgerows at the back of the garden. There are two full sets of china, cutlery and glasses, so you won’t need to be running the dishwasher half empty to make sure you have equipment for your next meal. The range cooker is a delight, with two ovens and built in grill and a stylish halogen hob, which is easy to clean (well, no-one likes to spend too much time cleaning on holiday do they!). If you have children, we have equipped the cupboards with plastic cutlery, plates, bowls and cups, including lidded cups for babies/toddlers. Feedback from guests told us that they would like a slow cooker so that when they got back from a busy day out exploring the area, they had dinner all ready and waiting so we have included one of those now as well. All in all, there is very little that you will find missing in The Lodge kitchen – and if you think of something to be added, just let us know!
In the utility room, you will find a full sized washing machine and tumble dryer for when you need to refresh your holiday wardrobe! The butler sink can be used to wash the really muddy things when you get back after a long country walk. You have ample coat hooks and shoe storage space in the utility area too, as well access to the downstairs cloakroom. Washing tablets are supplied for a couple of loads of washing
