          The self catering unit we booked was just fine. Not great value for money though. Check in was a disaster as they lost the booking, luckily the unit was still available. Also no breakfast included in the price.

          Hi, Rivendell is around 2.5km from the NHTC, about a 5 minute drive. I would say it's a bit too far to walk, especially as the route crosses a few major roads.
