There are rowboats and equipment for fishing, double and single kayaks, mountain bikes, SUP boards, swimming beaches, bush walks, sailing and boating trips available. Or you can relax in the hot spa pool, expansive gardens and hammocks. And while Hopewell is primarily a self-catering lodge, Lynley and Mike offer great coffees, homebaking and gourmet pizzas.
