We have internet wifi, however, it's not the fastest. Also, the location of the house excludes most second tier mobile phone carriers from working well. The home has a telephone for those that need to be contactable and local calls are free.

There is parking for 2 vehicles under the house as well as parking for another 2-3 vehicles off the end of the street. We also have a wheelchair ramp to assist those in need. Guests need to notify us prior to checking so we can ensure the wheelchair ramp is installed in time for their stay.
With no street lighting in the area, the stars in the night sky are incredibly bright and at certain times of the year you will easily be able to identify the Southern Cross and the Saucepan constellations and spot the odd satellite passing by from the front verandah.
The only things you are likely to hear and see are the Kookaburras and other birds and the odd moo from the cows in the valley below. Sometimes you are lucky enough to see kangaroos grazing at the bottom of the block at dusk and dawn.
The home is situated only 5 minutes drive from town, located in a quiet cul-de-sac.
Situated in the heart of the Blackwood River Valley, there are some great scenic drives throughout the countryside ranging from 3km to 120km. For the nature lovers there are excellent walking trails through the Bridgetown and surrounding areas.
We have endeavoured to make this house as family friendly as possible, however, if you have young children they will need to be supervised around the wood heater when it is in use.
We want you to have a truly special holiday experience at Leda Lodge, however, this much loved property is NOT a party house and not suitable for weddings/functions.
As dog owners we know how difficult it is to find accommodation that will allow pets which is why we are happy for you to bring your dog. You will need to bring its drinking/food bowls, leash and bedding. The property is fenced with plenty of room for dogs to run around.
Pet owners are responsible for cleaning up after their pets both within and outside the property. Pets are not allowed on the furniture or beds.
