If you prefer to go out, there are two bars and a good restaurant within walking distance. Minimum stay is 4 nights over a weekend or 3 nights midweek. During peak periods, the minimum stay is 7 nights. Alongside this information, you will see a 'Response Rate' which is supposed to indicate the percentage of timely responses to enquiries.
