What Our Visitors Had To Say.....
'We were very pleased with the cottage and found it very
relaxing. Considering the number of animals on the farm
we found it also very quiet. Everything in the cottage
was clean and comfortable and we certainly enjoyed our
12 day stay. We would definitely recommend this to
Mr & Mrs Moore .
'We received a lovely welcome at Penfound Lodge and the
cream tea which awaited us was very much appreciated
after a long journey. We found the Lodge cosy but
spacious with a lovely lounge and spacious bedrooms with
plenty of storage. Our children loved the pony's in the
field in the garden and fed them every day. The Lodge
was very well equipped and we can honestly say we would
thoroughly recommend it as a lovely place to spend a
holiday out of or in season.'
