          Excellent location with amazing views. Love the beds on wheels that can be moved outside. The food was pretty good and the staff went out of their way to help us out and set everything up for a large group.

          Can two beds be rolled out to sleep "under the stars"? There are two of us ladies coming in about 2 weeks. Thank you.

          Sorry, no, there is only one star bed that can be rolled out. (Please make sure you are booked into a regular cottage and not the family cottage, which has two rooms but no star bed)
