Arrival at the hotel begins with a mile long drive along a private road, with breathtaking and rugged scenery in every direction, sheep and cattle along the way, a pretty waterfall, and a trickling stream running by the front door.
Whatever your ideal activity, be it long strenuous walks or gentle strolls, you will experience the peace and serenity of breaking free from the madding crowd and return to a warm welcome and comfortable surroundings.
