  • Is there anywhere to safely store bikes?

    Not really, to be honest. If you just turned up, we might find somewhere, but we're always short of space, so I wouldn't rely on it

  • We're looking to make a booking on Friday 20th Aug for 1x night. It looks like you have 1x room left, please could you confirm whether we'd be able to bring our dog?

    I'm sorry, it appears that we're fully booked for 20 August. The one room we did have left is called 'Suite with Mountan View No Pets'

  • Hi what happens if i book and pay and we go back into lockdown and i won't be able to come up...thanks

    Our policy is that this is a no cancel booking, however If I make the cancellation, but then go on to resell the room, you can put the money paid towards alternative dates. Obviously, this is different if we're closed.
