Reviews

We stayed in the Slate Hut and found it to absolutely awesome! The outdoor bath was the star of the show, it took a while to heat up but we just played cards and drank wine while we waited. The most relaxing weekend away ever! Can't rave about this place highly enough.

The most amazing location that made our NZ experience what it was. Bathing under the stars was a real experience. Make more huts!!!!
