Guests can stay in private rooms or dormitories, where bedding and linen are provided free of charge. There are quiet areas (with wood burning stoves) for reading, meeting other guests and playing. There are two large areas: the flint and stone timber-walled converted pub cellar, suitable for yoga and The Garden Room with kitchen and toilet adjacent, ideal for group use; celebrations, classes, courses, workshops and retreats. There is a ground floor wetroom with double bed. Drying facilities. Local shops and pub. No smoking.
