Head over to our How to Get to Hopewell page to decide which option best suits your travel plans and then consult our Visitor Information Sheet for detailed information on arranging your transport. Alternatively, you can always contact us directly and we’ll be happy to help you organise your transport to and from the lodge.

Homely Luxury at its very best

We had three nights at Hopewell Lodge and Mike and Lynley are the most amazing hosts we have ever met in all our years of travel, here and abroad. They are so kind and giving and nothing is a problem. The views of the Sound are amazing, everything is spotlessly clean and the kitchen and dining/cosy lounge area are fantastic. You can do as little or as much as you like and we went rock oystering and mussel farming. Enjoyed walks, and a mussel evening which was superb. Relaxed in the hot tub and hammock. We hope to return one day and thank you Mike and Lynley for an amazing stay.
Date of stay: November 2020
