As the hostel was fully booked, we had a room in a cottage. Well what to say, I could live there for weeks: huge lounge with log fire, spacious room, large and cosy bed, 2 large showers, 2 toilets. Great and well equipped kitchens, lovely staff, very good locations.
The only drawback the trains running at night as they may disturb you. Bring earplugs and problem solved.
