'If possible, this place is even better in real life! We stayed here for a romantic weekend and it didn’t disappoint! The lodge is perfectly positioned nestled amongst the lakes with the beautiful woodland giving you the right amount of privacy, making you feel like you’re completely alone with a beautiful view of the lakes! The interiors are done to a high spec, with beautiful decor and plenty of light throughout the lodge. Florina made us feel so welcome with little touches including flowers and a birthday cake and was always quick to respond to any questions we had as well as recommend local walks and pubs.'
