Cabins and Cottage

Our self contained cabins and cottage are not serviced daily. For longer stays we provide a weekly clean.
On the day of your arrival you will receive a text advising your cabin number and self check in details.
This means you don’t need to come to reception to check in but can head to your cabin and start relaxing

Hotel Rooms and Suites

These are located in the main lodge where you will also find reception.
Please note that these rooms and suites do not have the same level of peace and quiet as the self contained cabins.
Depending on how busy we are, you may have other guests staying beside you and either above or below you.
Whilst our guests are typically considerate of others, you will be likely to hear the other guests coming and going. If this is an issue, we strongly recommend you book a cabin or cottage instead.

Our rooms and suites are are not serviced daily. For longer stays of 3 days or more we provide servicing but you are welcome to request any fresh towels or tops ups at any time.
On the day of your arrival please come to reception and we will show you to your room.
If you are arriving after 5pm please let us know so that we can leave directions to your room or for you
