          A group of 5 of us stayed in one of the 6 person bunk rooms, ideal for what we needed. Great self catering facilities in a newly refitted kitchen. Great value. Would make a great base for exploring Exmoor. We stayed down for the Redbull...More

          Our room was smelly, dark and cramped. The ceiling light was about 1 Watt and there was no sink or reading light. Toilets: floors certainly hadn't been mopped behind the door in some time. Common areas echoed and flickering over-bright lights spoiled the atmosphere.More
