We had a great room with a lovely view. The best thing was no t.v. on site. Peaceful stay. Second best was the free laundry room. Needed to do laundry and even the powder was included. Third best was the food. Very nice presentation, great taste, good portions and nice variety. Dinner menu changes nightly. You need to slow down and enjoy the outdoors in this great enviornment. Clare and Micheal are lovely siblings running this hideaway. Guided walks are offered, some free and some at a cost NO need to spend on the ones that cost if you can read the well placed signs along the tracks. However, the guided walks that are included are fun and informational. Michael's sheep sheering demo is wonderful. Go and have some peaceful fun.Only suggestion for improvement is Wi Fi. It is very restrictive.
