                                  A cafe on site would really help as the place is on the mountain making it difficult to drive in and out to shops

                                  Really lovely units and cottages, would advise not to drive there with a car during raining season. Manager very friendly went out of her way to accommodate us. Beautiful scenery. Clean and neat.
