The Lodge house library is available for the enjoyment of all guests. It is built on the original collection of Dr Ron Kennedy, who owned the house for many years and was the local medical practitioner from the 1950's into the 1980's.

There are a few short rules about the library, which we hope you’ll follow. These are displayed in the library and are summarised in our terms of business. You are sure to find something interesting to read during your stay. 

There is free wi-fi in the Lodge house, the code for which is provided to guests.

The library opens to a deck overlooking the closest reach of the river, ideal for that early evening glass of wine.
