We enjoyed the kayaking, archery, swimming pool and spa. For the more active there was golf, tennis and mountain bike riding. We loved the beauty of...

We had a great stay recently. A group of 22 was accommodated well, with great rooms and excellent meals at the Alpine Larder. What a great location, there is so much to do in the area, we will be back.

wonderful outlook, good range of facilities but unfortunately there was no spa tub at the pool! Family was extremely relaxed and left feeling great! Look forward to going back with friends too! The range of food on the menu was a little dull after a few days.
