    Most memorable was the final few days when my felted piece came together. (more)Jo Hickman
    Rosie worked tirelessly to make it the perfect vacation, from preparing the fleece, collecting the plants used in the dying, the dying itself, and of course, carding and spinning the wool. She and Alex made delicious, healthy meals and made sure the experience went smoothly. (more)Celia Winkler

    Memorable parts? The walking, the food, and Rebecca and Andy's hospitality. Local benefits? Andy and Rebecca have tried really hard to create a B&B which offers a very comfortable experience but yet limits the environmental impact. Everything that can be recycled or reused is, but yet at the same time this doesnít effect the quality of the service offered and I feel this certainly adds to the whole experience and ambience of the lodge. Overall rating? An excellent vacation,... (more)Ruth Seward
