    A weekend break. Between us had a room in the lodge and a camping pod. The lodge is beautiful. Everything is clean and very well presented. Lots of room to walk the dog. Breakfast was very good. A great place to stay.

    Are you dog friendly? I'm travelling back to Norfolk from Corwen and thought I would stop over on the way. Dog is a well behaved Goldendoodle. He is used to staying in B&B accommodation.
