I was searching everywhere for somewhere to book, however due to long- weekend, everywhere was booked out, and all places required min 3 nights stay. I didn't have much of the weekend to play with and we could only take one day off of work. Jan was amazing in letting us in for the one night, and was very welcoming...

Such a special experience awaits you. Jan - you are an amazing special host, appreciated and loved your meaningful touches, freshly baked brownies, a surprise gift for my partner, the fire lit in our room and under the bath, and pumpkins to take home!

Gorgeous, beautifully finished romantic retreat. The complete switch off from power means you are totally present with each other. The fire place inside the cottages with the candle light, sound of the flowing river produce a delightful charming and romantic ambience. The outside bath all prepared for you is a special extra treat. The property is stunning, beautifully cared for...

My husband and I spent 2 nights here (without our children) to celebrate our wedding anniversary, and it was bliss. Every element of our stay was so carefully thought out by Jan, the hostess with the mostess! We loved the cabin being off the grid with only candle light. We loved the outside bath in a serene setting. We loved...
