Absolutely stunning! Pictures do not do it justice, so roomy and clean. Perfect if you want a quiet getaway, only downside is there are hardly any taxis in the area and if you do get one they're very expensive but if you're happy to drive everywhere you can get to Torrington and Sheepwash within 10 minutes
