What can i say!!!! Absolutely the Best BnB ever! From the first phone call I made to Branley Lodge, with my enquiry, to when we checked out, the service was outstanding and we felt like we were at home, away from home. Bev really goes the extra mile at making her guests feel welcome and comfortable and we left having made a new friend. I would highly recommend Branley Lodge to everyone, and we will be back!
