Stopped here as part of our tour for lunch. If you are interested in The Good Karma Hospital then the filming location is directly opposite. Food and service were ok. Toilets ok.

A lovely location with lots of various length walks, easy to more challenging. All the paths are very well signed and very easy to follow without the need for a map. A great free activity.
