Reviewed July 10, 2011

I arrived at Sparrowhawk absolutely drenched after a long slog up the hill by bike, and received a warm greeting and found everything well kept and clean.

The large bunkhouse sits above a welcoming communal lounge/kitchen and is divided by curtains for a small amount of privacy, with bunks well spaced and lots of natural light from above. The sheets were fresh and clean and I had one of the best nights sleep in a long time.

Downstairs, there are boardgames, lots of information and maps of the local area, and the kitchen opens onto a courtyard which, on a fine morning, was lovely and sunny. At the back a secure bike shed is useful.

In the town three excellent pubs (the Union Inn has wifi and a very warm welcome), a well stocked co-op and a friendly tourist information centre. There is even a fish and chip shop if you're feeling too tired to cook.

Well worth the money, the owner should be very proud of Sparrowhawk. I'd return today if I didn't have to go to silly work.
