  • Hi guys I have stayed before in a female dorm. Is this still an option as it isn’t coming up? Thanks

    Thanks for the enquiry. Yes, our three bed female dorm is always an option and is very popular. If it is full, as it often is, just give us a call or send us a note and we will open up another room for you as female only. Hope this helps.

    Asked about: One-Bedroom Cottage • Answered on 14 December 2021
  • Is there any rooms where smoking is okay outside the door like outside a sliding door? If we come we want to be able to have a drink and smoke outside our room and then go inside thank you. we are very respectful and would never dream of smoking inside any room or house. Also how much for a room with its own toilet/shower? Thank you

    Hi! Thank you for your question. The Economy Double Room with Shared Bathroom is in our main hostel. We have three smoking areas outside the building, all lovely areas to relax. If you are looking to have a smoke directly outside your room you would be best to book one of our cottages which all overlook the grassed courtyard. I hope this helps answer your question.
