The car park is located around 20m further down the road from the hotel and is a mainly flat gravel area.

Guests must cross a narrow stone footbridge with single handrail to access the hotel from the roadside. This bridge is approximatly 50cm wide at most points.

Vehicular access through the stream is possible through the ford with a 4×4 at certain times although the water level can make this impassible. Please advise us if you would like to drive through the ford.

Once over the bridge access to the bar/reception/reception is down a gravel path. There is a gentle ramped, paved path into the reception/bar/resturant area which is all step free. This area also contains the toilets.
