The only drawback was very hard uncomfortable mattresses, but I suppose it is personal choice. We went out every day to sightsee and spent most evenings in. We went to the clubhouse on the Saturday night and found everyone very friendly and joined in with the quiz. It is a lovely site and lodge, and we had a great holiday. Thankyou
