The cooked brekkie was really good value for only an extra couple of pounds.

Hi Thank you so much for your positive review. We're very pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us. It's always great to receive good feedback. Kind regards Taylor & Carolny, Owners.


It's at a quiet place and a lovely walk to the hostel from the village. The kitchen is well equipped and the place is clean. The staff are also helpful in suggesting what to do. The 2 nights we were there there was almost no other people in the hostel, but there is only 1 female shower (as far as I know) so it might involve waiting when it's crowded. However, the hostel is closed during the day time, which will not be good if you want to stay in (which we almost wanted to because of the rain)
