The cabins were spot on for an adventure weekend away whilst still allowing you to stay dry and warm! Very friendly staff and they left us tonnes of wood for the bonfire and we're happy to leave us to it! Would definitely go again.

we were a mixed group of parents with adult children. I cant say the place is cozy and is quite school like, but the surroundings are lovely. A wonderful place to stay for a large group of people.More

Hi Caz, Thanks for the review. I would agree with your comments about not being very cozy. Our main customers are residential school groups so this probably explains the 'school like' feeling. If you can think of anything that would have made your stay more...More
