The lodges may look and feel remote but fine dining, delightful country pubs and characterful coffee shops are easily reached by car. Here's a few of our immediate favourites:

Fairfax Arms

As part of your stay, you will be offered a free chauffeur service to take you to the Fairfax for evening meals. The pub is just a few minutes drive from the lodges and offers an extensive menu featuring wholesome home-cooked food and daily specials at reasonable prices. Your driver will drop you off in time for your booking and drive you back to your lodge at the end of the evening.
