Uses

Some of the original building dates far back into the 18th century and was holiday rooms as early as the turn of the 20th century. It was also a Post Office, prior to 1928 and then converted into staff accommodation for the Nethy Bridge Hotel.

Richard and Patricia Eccles bought it in 1982 and opened it as a bunkhouse in Jan 1983. After 33 years and up to 10,000 annual bednights, they sold it to Heidi and Peter Charlton in January 2016.
