OMG!! You are organised!! You certainly can do that. You just need to let me know which room you are interested in. More info on my website, the rates are not yet done for 2020 but will be approximately 10% above next year... More

Access is fairly easy. Located on Dorries Drive which winds up towards the mountain, you take a short steep driveway up to the parking area and then a flight of stairs to the front door. Hope that helps.
