Self catering facilities

We provide comfortable and warm accommodation that is perfect for those who want greater flexibility to come and go as they please, especially walkers. Although the accommodation is simple, it is ideally laid out to provide a safe space for you to relax, cook and sleep. We offer four standard rooms, that have four bunk beds, or we can provide an entire room for organised groups or families wishing to stay with us. Our larger rooms have 16 beds. So, no matter how big or small your party, we have the right self catering accommodation for you. All rooms have underfloor heating, as do our shower rooms.

We offer free unlimited Wi-Fi as part of our self catering package, as well as lockers (you’ll need your own lock) bed linen and hairdryers.

Cooking and socialising

We want all of our guests to enjoy their time with us and to enjoy cooking, eating and socialising in our grounds. We provide many social spaces, including outside seating, where groups can sit and eat and enjoy quality time together. Our guest kitchen is also available at set times for you to use, including kitchen utensils. You just need your own food!

Extra options

Self catering gives you the freedom to cook when you want and to eat as and when you like. However, if you want a day free from cooking then there is the option to use our bed and breakfast service. You can also have meals in the main dining room and bar area.
