The lodge and decking areas are made totally of wood and present a great fire risk. We therefore do not provide a barbecue and discourage their use.

The lodge is all on a single level with just an initial step up onto the front decking from the car parking spaces but if you have specific accessibility need then please give us a call to discuss.

Being in a rural area the mobile signal is not brilliant but seems quite adequate on most mobile networks.

Elm Lodge is strictly non smoking.
