9.2 / 10 Jerry & Kathy D (Devon) 26 July, 2017

We wanted a quiet, get away from it all break and this was just the ticket. The facilities were good with great internet, nice pool, full kitchen facilities and home-from-home TV entertinment systems. Access to rooms is steep via ladder stairs and would not be great for older people and those with disabilities but not a problem for our group. Small comment would be for some additional lounge main lighting and a working in-pool light.

Local bakery is a cycle distance away in Alloue with facilities also in Conolens to include local supermarket and eateries. The area is rural, quiet, restful and relaxing.
