Why You Will Love Lost In Time

Come to relax unwind and unplug from the normal pressures of day to day life,


- "Hospitality: What can I say. Absolutely beautiful company and hospitality. Such warmth and care gone into the smallest of details. from the first point of contact to building a foundation to a long friendship Mike and Janet make the experience feel like home. Exceptional, open and warm hospitality. Accommodation: As at 21 May 2018 - The description does not do it justice. Fact, it exceeded any expectations. Where I thought I could not find a place of solitude and reflection in such a modernized world I was wrong. From the solar powered outdoor shower overlooking a waterfall, pot belly fireplace cooking our dinner and mulled wine or the beautifully constructed toilet overlooking nature, outdoor open fire where you can star gaze at the bottom of a valley. If you want to be off the grid, surrounded by nature, rivers and beautiful hospitality then this accommodation is perfect. Experience: The 40 minute buggy there and 40 minutes back was abseloutly stunning. This place offers a holistic experience. Back to nature, simplicity with care, character and charm mixed with lovely and genuine company. My wife and I have decided to make this place our anniversary spot with the kids. Looking forward to building a great friendship with Janet and Mike"

- "what an amazing stay. it was really magical with memories we will cherish. We loved the tour of the sheep farm in the side by side which is a unique experience the typical tourist will never get to enjoy. Janet and Mike what were knowledgeable and wonderful hosts. what an adventure! we loved every part of the stay. Get ready to be lost in time!"
