When we went here we had no idea what to expect. We were driving there and did not realise how far off the beaten track this would be. We were starting to get images of getting lost.
Really this was just a case of getting used to as it is not as far out as our imagination on day one made us think. But still you feel that you are in the middle of the forrest as you should with a former hunting lodge.
It is not the modern luxury type but it is inviting and homely. Those that cannot live without TV or internet (we were too far from the router to get it) need not apply. The website is clear about that so it was not a suprise and we got our internet fix in town, easy enough.
The place, rest, darkness and silence is enchanting. You immediately feel the stress of current society subside and are folded into the peace that the woods bring. You sleep in complete darkness and silence. We loved that aspect.
John is extremely nice and knowledgable about the nature that surounds you. He also knows about how to catch the Jacobite when you do not have reservations.
We liked the place a lot, but next time we'd be going for the wildlife experience he also offers.
