This place is fantastic. Hosts Ken & Chris are delightful. The setting is great, accommodation is great and the breakfast provision with morning fresh muffins make it a great place to stay. We will definitely return.

We have stayed here several times over the last few years and have always found Ken and Chris to be more than welcoming, Chris's morning muffins and slice are just like grandma used to make.

We were warmly welcomed by Chris and Ken,the owners,... More

The Owners were very nice and helpful and supplied us with ample breakfast supplies. A very lovely touch was the homemade muffins delivered to the door still warm each morning. The Cabins are immaculately clean and well presented.
