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... More

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... More

We were greeted by Jan who was a fantastic host. Our cottage was stunning, private and secluded. Just the sounds of nature which made our weekend perfect. The outdoor bath was so relaxing.

I went here over Valentine's weekend and it was perfect. A truly special and relaxing weekend away. Jan was amazing. She brought up breakfast each morning which we would cook on the BBQ.
