If you love the great outdoors and realise that you are 3.5 miles away from where you can park your car, won't miss your phone and want to stay in a beautiful wild place then this is for you! Brilliant atmosphere and very much for the hostelling enthusiast. I loved it. Lovely fire, dorms are fine, hosts are simply lovely and a wonderful array of books and don't worry they serve beer! You will meet fellow travellers with a tale or 2 and will be amazed with the natural surrounding beauty.
Loved this hostel which you can only reach on foot. Sweeping views out to the mountains and super quiet. Very simple facilities but it had all we needed and we bought the supplies for a simple but filling supper and breakfast from the friendly manager. Beds comfortable and hot water bottles available should you want some extra warmth (no heating in bedrooms). We loved it.
Stayed here for a couple of nights, fantastic location, hosts are tremendously helpful and I managed to sneak onto the bottom of the Cloven Stone Challenge list. I'd certainly recommend a stay here. I look forward to returning some time.
Recently stayed here for 1 night with an outdoor group. The location is fantastic with no neighbours for miles and the nearest road is over 3 miles away. The place was clean and comfortable and had a well stocked shop of various food and drink items. Would recommend to anyone planning a walk in the area.
Last June in the heat they were worried about their water supply: this year there were yellow flood warnings out. We arrived wet and cold so hot showers and collapsing in front of the stove with a Cockahoop beer was very therapeutic. We went to bed with hot water bottles : took me right back to my childhood! Susie and Martin are helpful hosts and have a decent range of comfort foods to self cook.
