We cannot recommend this holiday park highly enough. We were a family of 3 adults, 2 children and one baby. We stayed in the cabins one night and the cottage the next. The facilities were excellent with Phil & Helene (owners) providing cooking pots and utensils, crockery and even kitchen linen and detergent to use in the community kitchen. The kitchen and ablution blocks were meticulously clean. The beds in the cabins and the cottage really comfortable. Helene offered us the use of her herbal garden and fruit and meeting their pet animals - Julia the Kunekune, Willie the goat and Desmond the Dog which just added to the thrill of staying there for our children. A beautiful location beside the river and bush and very handy to all the tourist spots.. We will return. .
