    Hillsneck is luxurious but not at all pretentious. There are only four 'tents' (think glamping not camping), meaning a maximum of perhaps ten guests, so it is very relaxed. The bar / lounge / pool area is very comfortable. Dining is done together - great...More

    Hello. I was wondering if you get a choice at meal times or if it's always a set menu? Thanks!

    There is usually 2 choices for the main meal at lunch and dinner. However at lunch they always made me up a cheese board and I am sure they would make a salad if you want something lighter. Food is fantastic
