Lots of visitors have enjoyed their stay at Leithen Lodge and left enthusiastic reviews on TripAdvisor:
‘Definitely going back. Just had a fantastic night at Leithen Lodge. What a beautiful lodge in the most tranquil setting. We had the two bedroom Woolhope Bank apartment which is very gracefully decorated but homely at the same time… everything supplied that you need for a self catered stay… all crockery and glassware of a very high standard. We had three treatments each in a very peaceful and tranquil treatment room and enjoyed them immensely. We felt we definitely got great value for money and have booked another stay. The only problem we had was we didn’t stay long enough. A huge thanks to Julie for making us so welcome and being very helpful and also to Emma for her fabulous treatments.’
