We have very much enjoyed the peaceful tranquillity of Glenfruin Lodge.  We know the area quite well as our daughter has lived in the area for four years.  It has been lovely to stay here while she and her family are having house renovations.

The Lodge is all we could ask for, spacious with airy ceilings, but beautifully cosy with under floor heating.  Our granddaughters particularly loved the spa bath!
