Please note I stayed at Barrington Bunkhouse in Jan 12 - I couldn't backdate the review.
I stayed at the venue with a group of young people who were rehearsing a play in the local community centre.
The bunkhouse is a beautiful old building. The highlight was the gorgeous wood burner - very welcome for a January stay. The place is excellent value for money - clean, well laid out, great kitchen and toilet / shower facilities. The beds surround a comfortable seating area which accommodated great socialising opportunities for the young people.
We were made very welcome by Val, the owner. She made sure we were well looked after. We were even treated to an evening of traditional music courtesy of herself and her daughter. She is incredibly knowledgable about the area and very friendly.
The area itself is stunning, and Rookhope is a great place to stay while you take it all in. Top marks!!
