You are provided with bacon, eggs, mushrooms, tomatoes, yoghurt and muesli and a fruit platter for breakfast for the next morning all upon arrival. In the morning one of the lovely staff delivers fresh croissants to your... More

This was our third time staying here & we absolutely love it. YR would have to be one of the most peaceful getaways you could find, the surrounding countryside takes your breathe away.

“These are cabins, four in a row, spaced far enough away from each other to enjoy the privacy. They are identical. We enjoyed an afternoon wine on the verandah, sharing only with the birdlife!”
