We booked a self-contained family unit with a few hours notice for $160, and were delighted with what we were given. A log-cabin style room in a terrace of four - looking over the camper van site so nothing special to see, but inside was cosy. One separate bedroom with two single beds, one double bed in the main living/kitchen/dining area, and a large shower bathroom. A microwave and an electric frying pan are provided which was enough to make a cooked breakfast although there wasn't much room to work. The hostess was very friendly and helpful.

We experienced car trouble when approaching the Fox..Deborah was amazing, talked to mechanic, assisted with after hour phone numbers, communicated with van hire company and then came to our site with much needed and appropriate refreshments. This made, what could have been a disaster, one of our most relaxed and welcoming stays.

Deborah is a really thoughtful and kind hostess. She has thought of everything and created beautiful and comfortable accommodation. This was our favourite place out of more than 10 different places that we stayed while touring. There were so many welcoming little touches all in the best possible taste. This is a real gem and we were so happy staying here.

We spent one night in a delux cabin and it was fantastic !! The room was big with a small kitchen and a table for breakfast (included but you do it yourself). The bathroom was also big with a spa bath - which was awesome ! The room was very well decorated and the bed very comfortable, nice for a romantic stay. There are also a few nice dinner options around :-) there is a lake not far which is worth a visit. However the wifi is not good and you get 30 minutes for free but then have to pay.

Room Tip: Delux cabin was fantastic
