    “We first stayed at Betty's Lodge in October 2020 hence the re-visit.”

    Firstly it's clean,comfy and well equipped apart from no dishwasher tablets only one teatowel no kitchen cleaner and no toilet cleaner and no guest book. It's also a bland place. In 2020 it had lovely touches like little ornaments, a side table with a box of dog goodies and a slate with a handwritten welcome. Everything that makes a holiday " home" for our stay. We sadly won't be back for a 3rd stay.
