My husband and I stayed at the Wild Patch Chocolate Studio for one night, a short break and kid free!! The whole package was just lovely. The studio was nestled amongst lush greenery and had a beautiful fire place, the bedding was very comfy and there was not one thing that had not been thought of or provided. We were... More

The studio itself has all of the modern perks you could ask for, as well as a gorgeous fireplace. The owner, their pets and the nearby shops and... More

We had a great weekend at Wild Patch. The service was absolutely first class. From the chocolate making demonstration to allowing our children feed the chickens it made for a very informative and fun learning experience for our 3 kids. Linda provides a highly professional service and the personal touches were most appreciated - including freshly baked bread, chocolate gifts,... More

Linda was very accommodating and the main house lived up to the expectations. The property location is nice and quiet and central to the township. She even made sure our kids got to see her make the chocolate !

Thanks so much for staying at Wild Patch and glad you had a lovely weekend. Happy that the children enjoyed visiting me in my chocolate kitchen - while I had lots of chocolate being made - and surprised them with their own personalised freckles while they were there :) More

Our 2014 Oxfam Trailwalker team stayed 3 nights at Wild Patch Retreat. The retreat was perfect for our support crew to use as their base, between checkpoints and then for everyone to rest up after the event. The kitchen was well equipped and the breakfast provisions, particularly the home grown eggs were most appreciated. The log fire was a winner... More
