Guests can relax in the comfortable lounge and enjoy a cold beer, soda, juice or a glass of wine whilst browsing a variety of books and magazines about the local area. Breakfast is served in the small dining room, and dinner can be prepared if booked before 1400 each day. The kitchen is also able to prepare a simple packed lunch.
