Winter Closure 16 April until 14 October annually

Summer 2018/19

We expect to run close to 100% capacity from 20 December until about 20 March and we want to make sure that as many people as possible can stay. We have a 2-night minimum stay, so this also means that most bookings during that period must either leave a 2 or more night gap OR go next to an existing booking.

If you cannot book your first choice dates or room, check the minimum / maximum stay or arrival / departure day restrictions by hovering over the calendar. See below for an explanation of the warning messages. Thanks for your understanding - just email us if you cannot book what you are after and we will try to help.

The Resurgence Lodge address


means that the room is booked but we may be able to suggest a different room type;

so during peak season when we run at 100% capacity, we cannot accept a booking which creates a one-night gap as we cannot then sell that room-night;

means that we cannot accept a booking starting / ending on this date in this room type (because it creates a one-night gap);

sometimes it may look like we have 3 or more consecutive nights available but in fact there are two rooms each with a 2-night availability. We cannot allow a [3-night stay] in this case because the other room-night becomes a one-night gap;

normally 2-nights, but when the last remaining room in a type is available for a run of 3-nights; if we sold only 2-nights it would leave a one-night gap so we put a 3-night minimum on this period
