Comfortable beds and plenty to keep you occupied; cinema room and snooker table were well used! Plenty of space for getting together (12 of us) or for being apart. Lovely walks too, the dogs loved it! Quite isolated so you need to take plenty of food but there was a good shop only fifteen minutes drive away which opened quite late (even on a Sunday). Had a great family weekend and would love to go back!

There is everything you will need and breakfasting with the red squirrel was an extra treat. We were so impressed we have already booked to go back.
