The Hermitage is completely separate from the rest of the accommodation block. Akin to a private hermit hut, it is a highly-requested room.
There is no central heating in the Hermitage, but the wood-burning stove is so effective it heats the whole building nicely (please ask for logs from Reception if you need more.) There is a small bathroom, kitchen (complete with an oven, microwave, toaster, kettle, a fridge and a freezer, and a dining area with a table and chairs). There are two lounge-chairs as well.
Please note that the wooden stairs up to the double bedroom are quite steep. The views from the windows are stunning and on a clear day, you can see the High Cross over the valley.
