What a wonderful place this is. You are so warmly greeted on arrival like a friend of the family that you soon feel at home. I can't thank the staff enough for their attentiveness, and the knowledge and friendliness of the ranger/tracker was exceptional too - it has already been said in the other reviews. There are only two major downsides - firstly my waistline, I was gutted when I got on the scales this morning, as the food is so lovely, and so copious that you cannot resist, but the results show! The only other is the chilly drives - no fault of Nottens, who thoughtfully put hot water bottles and blankets in the truck for you, but just a warning to others to be better prepared than me, as I forgot to take a hat and gloves, and neglected to think about the fact that I'd be in an open truck with wind blowing through my hair. Got toasty in the end, with help from a jaunty Nottens hat bought in the little gift shop, but do go well prepared with warm fleeces and hats, given that it is now winter there.
Thanks again guys, we will be sure to recommend you and have some amazing memories to savour.
