Accommodation

TOUR THE ‘NEW’ LOW LIGHT                                                                         
A major redevelopment of The Low Light took place in 2014 and while work continues to maintain and upgrade some aspects of the facilities, the main work is complete and the accommodation is much enhanced on previous years 
 
The facilities include improved water treatment and supply, electric lighting and power supply for charging devices, the three new bedrooms, a shower room, ‘boot room’, lounge and ‘office’, dining kitchen and store room and most importantly – a flushing toilet !
 
Below are a series of images which give you a flavour of the accommodation provided:

Outside facilities adjacent to the low light include a range of benches, and flat “patio” areas at both sides of the building which enables dry access, loading and unloading area and an outside sitting, eating and socialising space.
