What a gorgeous spot for a quiet getaway!Tried to book Gumnut Cottage for the weekend but it wasn't available so the owners offered us a special deal on Duffy's House and we certainly weren't disappointed.
The facilities were excellent and there was nothing we could think of that was needed to make the weekend any more enjoyable. The cottage is beautifully furnished (super comfy bed!) and tastefully decorated throughout and the grounds were delightful. Sitting on the verandah with a glass of wine and listening to the native birdsong as the sun slowly sets over the dam is an experience not to be missed,
We found Dirk and Judith to be attentive and engaging hosts and would have no hesitation in recommending the property to anyone looking for a peaceful country break.
