Fantastic "camping" option

Pros: The serenity. The wild life.
Cons: Nothing.
Location: There are walking trails but we didn't give them a go.
We don't camp. Our friends do. They stayed in the campsite over the road and we stayed in the cabins, getting together around a campfire at night but staying in luxury during the day. Very comfortable cabin, with everything we needed. The bird life is spectacular, and the property has donkeys and Highland cows.

Hi thank you so much for the review and we are pleased you did enjoy your stay, with regard to the size of the TV screen, unfortunately for such items we are totally solar powered and that does not support large screen TV's. Upon replacement we will endeavour to find lower wattage/bigger screens. We do hope to see you again

5 out of 5
Pros: Peaceful location amongst the trees with lots to do nearby.
Cons: TV too small to watch DVD's. Perhaps should supply some games, e.g. scrabble, monopoly
Location: Away from it all
Facilities: Home away from home; Value: Great deal; Service: Outstanding; Cleanliness: Immaculate; Very enjoyable weekend. Take enough food for your stay as it is 30-40 km's to the nearest town.

Pros: The beautiful cabin with its log fire place set in the middle of no where
Cons: I would have loved to have had a double shower in the huge shower space we had. From a plumbers point of view this would not be that hard to do and could be done without having to remove tiles.
Location: Perfect, Wonderful, Outstanding
Facilities: Outstanding; Value: Great deal, Fantastic, Amazing; Service: Flawless, Remarkable, Outstanding; Cleanliness: Immaculate; Just what the doctor ordered, could not have made the weekend any more relaxing.

Hi thank you for your kind words, and we do appreciate advice and comments. However, we hope you realize that we are totally dependent on rainwater so need to be reasonably careful. We would love to see you again though
