Sleeping Arrangements

While accommodating for 8 we recommend a maximum 6 adults. A couple is great, 2 couples is perfect, 3 couples is fine.... any more and it's not worth it unless you are a family group with a couple of small children and you don't mind mucking in. Sleeping Bags for family groups will give you simple options for sleeping of a larger group.

We provide all linen blankets, duvets, pillows, sheets. and 2 towels.  We recommend you bring more towels if you are in a larger family group.
