    / Fisherbeck Farmhouse
  • ...I just wanted to pass on our appreciation to the housekeeping team from North Lodge. After heavy snow on Friday our car was totally snowed in and they kindly dug, pushed and generally helped us get out of the snowy drive and on our way. We are extremely grateful for their help.
