Sparrowhawk Backpackers is a great place to stop off in the village of Moretonhampstead. The bunks were really clean and comfortable, with excellent facilities. The outside courtyard is a great place to sit and chat.The owner was really friendly and made for a relaxed atmosphere. It is also great value for money. I can highly recommend Sparrowhawk and would DEFINITELY stay there again. 10 out of 10.
