About us

Richard and Julie returned to the Colley family home in 2000 and set about transforming Sladen Lodge from a small cottage in the garden to a modern, spacious and luxury self-catering Lodge. 

We are delighted that Lynne is now managing the Lodge and looks forward to hearing from you.

We live next door at Sladen which has been in the Colley family for 4 generations. We absolutely love where we live and think you will too – it is a walkers paradise and you will find a warm welcome in the shops, pubs, restaurants and cafes. You will be amazed at how many activities are available nearby set in the most spectacular surroundings.

precious time together

We recognise that time is probably the most valuable thing in life these days and spending it with family and friends in a luxurious, peaceful and relaxing location is what we all dream about.

Our service to you

We have created a place to relax, spread out and enjoy the superb facilities. We believe we provide everything you could possibly want. However, we listen to our guests and continuously upgrade and update the facilities providing new equipment and furnishings throughout the year. We welcome and value your feedback and will always act upon it.

We would like to know if you have any special requests, would like advice on how to spend your time, what to do and see, catering options or ideas for creating that special celebration. Please don’t hesitate to ask – our experience and local knowledge is invaluable.

Nothing is too much trouble and we really care about ensuring your stay is as enjoyable as possible. Please do not hesitate to pick up the phone and we will help you plan and prepare to make your get-together unforgettable.
