This glorious little establishment is a few kilometers down dirt road, and all you can hear all night is the lovely peaceful sounds of the bush. We came here by simple chance that it popped up on voucher site, and what a lovely delight it was.
We stayed in the Parisian style Bower cottage, and very much enjoyed the spa. The hosts put lovely chocolates, rose petals, and candles everywhere to make our stay incredibly romantic. A cute little breakfast hamper awaited us in the very well equipped kitchen. The lounge is purpose built for snuggles, and the fire, although not entirely needed when we stayed, was a genuine delight. The SHEETS! OMG The sheets they have on the bed (the mattress itself not that great, but I'm picky there) are very nice and I wish I had asked what brand they were! The entire cottage space has been well used, and is perfect for a couple.
The hosts were extremely helpful, and pointed us in the right direction to take our kayaks out. They also recommended a local restaurant Flow which was delicious.
A fully stocked DVD cabinet was well used by us, so we could stay in during the night and enjoy some down time.
The grounds are spectacular, and were in full blossom when we were there.
Very recommended for a weekend of snuggles, and escape from the hustle of working life.
