Great lodge very well equipped hot tub was amazing plenty of dvds, books and games if the weather is bad. I tried fishing but the big fish weren't playing caught a few smaller ones with the help of the owner Chris. East Harling village has everything you need from a coop to a couple of pubs we had an evening meal in the nags head very nice menu. LoRead morevely walks along the river thet. Some dog noise but that didn't bother us and you don't hear them of a night. Would definitely book a return trip Hide
