- Just this year 2015 my daughter and myself have visited the Kings House Hotel, lunch and refreshments in the Walkers/Hikers room round the back, beautiful hand made tables and chairs like something out of Tolkein's the Hobbit... We advise taking a bag of bread, as, as soonn as you park your car in the car park the deer will run towards you to be hand fed. A very memorable day.
