We've booked lodge weekends through hoseasons for quite a few years for us and friends but this year as we're not going abroad we thought we'd have a little staycation and book a long weekend. We booked our little trip away at 'Kingsford Lodges' in Somerset. It's in a little town called Longdown that really is in the middle of nowhere - the entire site is owned by a lovely family. We were greeted by a lady called Debbie who was ever so welcoming. There's a private fishing lake on site to keep the men happy and each of the lodges comes equipped by a very large hot tub. It's the kind of quiet that you forget even exists all you can hear are the birds and the sheep in the next field. Theres not much around for quite a while which is just what we were after. We came prepared with wine, cider & portable BBQ's ready for all four days. There's free wifi throughout the site too so you can stay in touch with the outside world if you really want too. We took a trip to Torquay one day too but I'll save that little towns delights for another post. I'd love any lodge recommendations if you've been to any perfect bits of the UK. The only necessity is that it has a hot tub - absolute bliss. A donkey is a really lovely bonus too.
