Full marks to both Ray and Lynn. A magical location and superb lodge. A special shout out to Ray who spend the best part of a day fly fishing with my partner giving him great local advice on how to fish this beautiful river. They both returned with beaming smiles having landed around 10 trout each.

Thoroughly recommended. Janet

A memorable weekend had by 2 couples. Fishing, river walks, lazy mornings and outstanding hosts. We came away feeling like we had a weeks holiday. Paradise setting and perfect results with a beautiful baked trout meal. Thank you Ray and Lynn, cant wait until next time! Donna

We stayed here with our two boys to attend a nearby friends' wedding. Ray and Lynn were extremely easy to communicate with and ever so hospitable. Their little lodge is just gorgeous..... extremely comfortable and cosy. As for the showers.... to die for!! Great hosts, great accommodation. Perfect for what we needed and would be brilliant for that little break away. Oh...... and they tell me the fishing's not too bad either!! Sally
