Thank you for having us in the Tree Lodge. We felt so relaxed and at home. You really have a special place there. I am becoming addicted to real wood fires and compost toilets and greenery and birdsong....I could go on! We did not even use the lanterns, candles more than enough. Lovely place.
Hopefully you will let us return
