We stayed for a week in the Bunkhouses as part of a large party of Scout Leaders (I was in the RAYNET Group). Our hosts were fantastic and the full breakfasts were just the thing we needed on those wet and windy days. The evening meals were legendary, especially the pies and anything served on the lava stones, and the local ale really went down well after long days in the hills. Considering there were 28 of us (when complete) the food never took long to arrive and our hosts willingness to feed us all bacon sandwiches and bucket loads of hot tea at 05:30 on the Saturday and Sunday mornings was so much appreciated!
Great bunkhouses which are very warm and comfortable, nice wet rooms which were much appreciated after cold and wet days on the hills, and clean bedding made for a pleasant stay.
Very well done mine hosts. I will look forward to a return visit perhaps in the B&B.
