The Cambus O May Hotel was built in 1874 as a Victorian hunting and shooting lodge. The hotel has twelve bedrooms which have recently been refurbished in individual decor style. We didn't stay as hotel guests but as family friends. This meant helping with the daily chores and having great fun.

Unique Qualities: The hotel is pet friendly and is the only place I take my dog for a short break. The 16 acres of woodland is a perfect place to relax and unwind. We returned in April for a day visit to escape the sea haar. The sunny weather provided a great opportunity to enjoy tea on the terrace and relax in the hotel's gardens. The hotel provides picnic lunches these can be booked at night and collected in the morning. Ours was made up impromtu in the still room and included rolls with ham & coleslaw melon with raspberries, chocolate mousse and a soft drink. We also included some water for the dogs and some doggy snacks.
