A bright cheerful place with a colour scheme of greens, blues and yellows. Local items are on display in the entrance area (available to buy) and there are two bright lounges - which can be used by guests when they are not hired out - and an airy cafe, with floor-to-ceiling windows framing a large veranda and garden beyond.


The staff are warm and helpful. The café closes at 4pm, but when we were hurrying to leave the staff kept telling us to relax and take our time, saying people are never rushed out the door. Walking maps and wellies can be provided.
