This was my 2nd stay at Old Brett Road Hut within a month, but this time I brought my 9 year old grandson, and was able to share the uniqueness and history of the hut and its contents. Once again, Shona & Scott were very welcoming and hospitable, and happy to share their knowledge and experience of the area. We also got to go fishing with significant success. A brilliant overnight stay for both my grandson and myself.

Our stay at Old Brett Road Hut was great. The hut is really quirky with a clever use of second- hand/ environmental type materials and a DYI mentality of Scott& Shona. Our hosts are fabulous people who made us so welcome.
