Other things to note
Please ony use the area in the front of the house, where the grass has been mowed. The other side of lodge is still under development. Please dont walk off into the forest around the building due to hazards such as sudden drops, old mine shafts and to keep our spring water supply safe.
The water is safe to drink and comes from a fresh water spring, but after heavy rain it can colour the water from tannin. We have provided a drinking bottle from town water supply if you are worried about this. Other option would be to boil water before drinking.
