They have their own system, such as you choosing your evening meal in the morning, and then everyone eating together in one session. We were a family group including a 92yo granny and 8yo...

Food is good with substantial breakfasts and a good choice of courses for dinner, all made using a lot of local products. There's also a wide...

A Holiday Fellowship house with loads of walkers but they take independent guests as well. Stunning location with views of the sea and chalk cliffs. Bedrooms were newly refurbished with very comfortable beds, marvellous hot baths - more like a four star hotel than my memories of HF holidays fifty years ago. The breakfast choice was outstanding and the staff...

Second visit to this great location. We stayed in one of the refurbished rooms which was first class. New decor, shower room and beds. The food is mostly locally sourced and the breakfast has a huge selection of healthy choices together with the usual cooked breakfasts. Staff friendly and helpful. Fantastic location.
