It was VERY relaxing and i think the best thing is that there's no network and i feel it's ideal for anybody who wants to get "lost" (i hope you understand the pun). It would also be ideal for business trips.

Absolutely brilliant. I have never been to such a well equipped camp site. Hosts were extremely friendly but not overbearing. I had one meal there which was really great, chicken pie. Highly recommended.

Definitely going back the perfect getaway to recuperate and be away from the hustle and bustle of city life. The rooms are beautiful and the area is nice and quiet with excellent views of the mountains and the river.

All water; from the showers to the wash basin is river water... More
