"Still have lovely memories of your kind hospitality, scrumptious dinner and tasteful decor, such a vision of rolling hills, grazing horses and birdsong to wake up to. Came home energised and stress free - thank you". Marie and Art Green
"I have really enjoyed my stay at Saratoga Lodge. It is a rare gift to be so completely trusted with someone else's home. We were looked after beautifully and it turned a working week into a most restful stay. I'm looking forward to meeting you when I come back again. My husband would love this beautiful place".
