Rated 5 out of 5 by Tracey Higginbotham on 26th March 2018

Portmile Lodges are very private with a great outlook. Only 8 lodges set off the road. Very pleasant owners. The lodges have everything you would want and very clean. Also have hot tubs with each lodge

Rated 5 out of 5 by Daryn Potgieter on 22nd May 2018

Stayed for a week in January. Accommodation is to a very high standard. Proprietor is friendly and welcoming. Very cozy and warm. Never once felt the cold even with the heating off at night. Properties are well equipped (we stayed in a 3 bedroom) with all the needed amenities. Local town, main line train station and shops within 10 mins drive. Would recommend and would return. Originally failed to mention that the lodges have hot tubs that are routinely checked and working even through the winter. It's was 2 degrees outside when we jumped into ours.
