Reviews


A wonderful weekend spent enjoying the native bush - stunning, private and peaceful are the words that come to mind. The baths were amazing and the fire kept the place lovely and warm. Slept so well. The homemade muesli was delicious as were the other little touches provided like the herbal teas made using local ingredients and the essential oils for the baths. A real retreat experience provided by lovely hosts.
