There were 7 adults and dog in our party and everyone enjoyed their time there the whole layout is great. we sat around the kitchen table talking and playing games when not out and about seeing the local areas. The ladies loved the Victoria bath, the blokes had no chance, maybe next time. Would recommend staying.
