We had such a lovely time away in the Tin Shed. We were blown away with the standard of the lodge. It was spotlessly clean and so nicely decorated. All of the little touches like the robes, pancake maker and coffee maker were great. The hot tub was awesome and the little egg chair and different patio sets were a lovely touch! Overall extremely happy with our stay and would recommend it to anyone! Thank you!
