We spent a beautiful few days at Mystwood after reading all the glowing reviews on this site - that did seem to good to be true. I was worried that it might not live up to our expectations. But it did, and more!
It rained almost non stop during our stay (the first rain that had fallen in months!), but it didn't matter! The place is very well set up for a cozy, rainy weekend. We still used the spa every day, walked to the sweet little dam, sat out on the balcony and watched the rain, lit the BBQ, and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Our 3 year old boy loved playing with Stella, who is the best trained dog I know.
The fridge was filled with goodies. A huge jar of coffee, free-range eggs, local bacon, milk. There was freshly baked bread. We were often asked if we had run out of anything, and if we needed anything. We had the delicious Moroccan BBQ chicken pack, and ordered the unbelievably amazing home cooked Thai dinner.
I cannot fault this place. The beds are so comfortable, the property is lovely, the area is so peaceful, the wine tour was lots of fun. I could go on and on.
But the thing that I feel really sets this place apart from other places I have stayed, is the people who run it. Real people, caring people, lovely people. They are wonderful, and we will be back.
