The
Experience

Off-piste drivers will delight in the approach – down a bumpy farm track, over an open field, across a ford and through grassy woodland. You land in a dreamy, bucolic setting with an arboretum and views over two deep water lakes (yes you may swim, yes you may use a little boat) with island, waterfalls, a small summerhouse that revolves, and a stream teeming with wildlife. A veranda and patio with table and chairs face south so you won’t miss a thing; writers, artists and those clutching a large drink may take root here on less chilly days. Your wooden cabin is comfortable and very cosy: find one fresh and airy living/dining room with a fully formed kitchen area and plenty of good seating; glass doors open out to the terrace. The main bedroom has a giant bed with a pretty rose-strewn bedspread and a cream rug; the bunk room is fine for adults or children but it’s all so romantic you may want to farm them out! Owner Victoria, who lives nearby, leaves you jam from her damsons and raspberries, local apple juice, something baked, and fresh flowers. A gorgeous little watery retreat.

Beautiful place to stay. Very warm welcome from Victoria.The cabin is clean and bright and quite roomy. It is equipped with everything you need. The grounds are stunning, it's like having your own arboretum. The lakes are so clear and full of wildlife, we spent hours just wandering around exploring. It was great knowing the fencing is secure so the dogs could run safely too. Really relaxing week. Hope to return soon.

What a find! This is the most amazing special place to stay , we have never had such lovely grounds and 2 lakes all to ourselves ! Such good value too. It was the most relaxing holiday -we enjoyed BBQ's and the fire pit at night under the stars, rowing in the boat and swimming in the lake, our dog loved it.Delightful owners, Victoria was very helpful and has furnished the property to a very high standard.we will definitely be back.

Peaceful and perfect! Everything you need in a holiday cottage set in a wonderful location. Lots of walks close by which are equally quiet (brilliant if you have a nervous dog). Good selection of pubs to try too.

A great couple of days away. Very tranquil and relaxing, i've not slept so well in a long time. Victoria and family were very welcoming, and the retreat is of a very good standard, would highly recommend. I'm now trying to figure out when we can go back.

Liz, Aylesbury

We were impressed with the web site but simple thrilled and wowed by the reality of lakeside retreat. The cabin was very modern and with the New England style we love. So clean and very cosy. The bed was also very comfortable . The terrace area and barbecue was perfect and the cabin surrounded by the lake , trees and beautifully managed lawn areas. We loved walks by the lakes and the summerhouse was really special. Retreat is the key word it is so peaceful and quiet surrounded by beautiful nature . The owners were really welcoming and helpful in all enquiries etc.

An utterly blissful place.

Patricia, Beckermet

No words can do this place justice! It is just absolutely amazing! Surrounded by beautiful lakes, stunning views and a picturesque private little forest all to ourself! I couldn't fault this place. I would 100% recommend this place! Private and secluded, with a wealth of wildlife surrounding us! There are lots of things to do close by and lovely places to eat! Very pet friendly as well. We will definitely be coming back soon!

Chelsea, Essex

A perfect place to take our puppy on her first trip away from home. Stunning countryside and scenery with four lakes to stroll around and a rowing boat to use. One of the lakes has an antique summerhouse with deckchairs and camping seats. We saw deer, a woodpecker and one of the family's dogs came to pay us a visit. Our pup enjoyed the free dog biscuits and spending all of her time 'off lead' in safety. We loved the beautifully furnished interior of the lodge with all mod cons and the very comfy sun loungers outside. We were so sad to leave but are taking lots of happy memories with us!

Clare, Manchester

Fabulous break in what was our own private hideaway. So peaceful and relaxing in such a beautiful setting. lovely welcome touches, yummy muffins, dog treats/blankets. Perfectly situated to explore the surrounding area. Will definitely be back

Tammy, Nottingham

Gorgeous retreat for couples, children and dogs!

Laura, York

A truly wonderful stay, highly recommended. The host and hostess were charming and nothing was too much trouble. We look forward to another visit soon!

Charlotte, Dorset

I just wanted to say my husband and I have just spent the most fantastic week in the log cabin in Milson - what a wonderful place - it all felt a bit Hansel and Gretel (without the witch) truly tranquil and as an escape from London you couldn't ask for more. So thank you for choosing it for your website and thank you to Victoria Orchard for all her work on the cabin and her wonderful foody recommendations for local eateries all of which were spot on.

Isla

A truly beautiful place with a lovely warm welcome. A real getaway from it all break boating, swimming, walking, bbqs and generally doing nothing. This place wants for nothing and shouldn't be kept a secret!!
