Thank you for providing such a comprehensive review and for taking note of the little things that I provide.

We loved our freshly laid eggs and the homemade tea cake was delicious. We went for dinner at a local winery (Brandy Creek Estate) and loved...

Comfortable, classy, generously provisioned with local produce - just what we expected. But nothing could have prepared us for the wonder and beauty of the magnificent views of the countryside and hills from each window of our suite. Truly magical and memorable! Thank you Angela

The Accommodation was Very Modern and comfortable, only had one night stay and was really relaxing , Great view over the valley from all aspects of every room, including bath, As Accommodation is relatively new once the shrubs and gardens mature it will be a sensational retreat.
