It feels like you're in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by lovely countryside, quiet and beautiful horses. The staff is extremely friendly and accommodating, although it felt like they were stretched quite thin with too many guests.
But regardless, my friends and I were able to ride as much as we wanted and on our own, without being grouped in with others. The horses are great, they have a good range of advanced and beginner. We did a combination of flat and jumping lessons in the ring and trail rides in the hills and on the coast, and all were good. The instruction was particularly helpful and insightful. You should also ask to go on a ride on the coast - it's a one-hour drive to a different barn, but well worth it because the views are spectacular.
We stayed in a cottage that sleeps four. They're basic, but clean and perfectly comfortable, with warm water
A car is definitely recommended because there's nothing around there, but at least the dinner is abundant and very good - four courses every night! They were also accommodating to my dietary restrictions.
