An impressive open plan lounge, dining area and kitchen occupy the ground floor while spread over the two upper levels are five double bedrooms, two of which are en suite, one family bedroom, and 2 bathrooms. Ravensprings is very adaptable; whilst normally sleeping 20 in 8 bedrooms, to cut prices we can close off up to 2 bedrooms to accommodate smaller groups. We also have an extra 3 single beds that can be used to make certain bedrooms into family rooms or for groups up to 23. It is also available for bargain Autumn and Winter breaks.
