Lovely Villa with two double rooms with comfy beds, large bathroom and open lounge, dining and kitchen and the Open fire was set ready for us...

Stayed with family for a recent wedding at the local reception centre. I was so impressed with the seclusion of Fernglen. So close to where we had to be for the big important day and completely stocked with everything we need to prepare and feel at ease. The photos of the wedding couple came out perfectly as there were opportunities...

We stayed two nights with our kids and my parents in the Grand Lodge. Plenty of space, with the two kitchens and relaxing areas. The kids and I loved lazing in the hot tub, even in the cold of Winter. Saw deer, fox, rosellas and beautiful natural forest views. So secluded, you feel like you are miles from any other...

Very accomodating for a last minute weekend getaway with friends. Clean & comfortable self contained cottages set in a peaceful location with a hot tub to top off the relaxation. Mornings were fresh but beautiful waking up to the sound of nature, even had a visit from a Kookaburra much to our amazement! Short drive to local supermarket & picturesque...

“The lodge can be split in two and you can even just choose one bedroom as other bedrooms can be locked so extremely versatile for groups - family or friends, but still cosy for a couple.”
