Unfortunately I did not have a lot of time to fully explore the facilities as we were working in the area and had little daylight to see the full extent of what was on offer. The rooms were clean and simple. You get for what you pay for. But the views are priceless. Really something in the mornings. The food is really good. The vegetarian pizza great. A warm bar with fireplace and a lot of foreign chatter. The staff are very friendly despite being so busy, you are immediately made to feel at home. We stayed in Strider cottage and the trek through the forest at night to the bar may put some off, but on a moonlit night, it was great. Well recommended.
