Visited Timberlake on a rainy Sunday afternoon. It was not quite as impressive as we expected. Some iinteresting arts/crafts and food stalls, but on the whole nothing special. We were very excited about the chocolate stall, but in the end everything kind of tasted the same and it wasn't quite worth the massive price we paid. Will visit here again during the Friday night market to see if a different atmosphere makes Timberlake more exciting.

Dear Marike, we feel sad that we did not live up to expectations. All the outlets at timberlake are independent owner operated businesses and timberlake is trying to represent the best in small and local, and provide a healthy alternative to the mall with our outdoor activities. We will certainly pass your comments on in a bid to keep improving. Please note that there is no longer a Friday night market at timberlake, this was only held while another local market was temporarily closed. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. We hope that you give us another chance in the future. Regards, timberlake.

Definitely worthwhile to stop here! Such a lovely place, little shops here with goods such as wine, cheese, crafts, sweets, chocolate and mohair goodies. They also have an oyster bar and other places to eat.

Its easy to miss this fabulous restaurant - we drove right past and turned back.
Excellent food - the only place to find proper free-range organic food in the area (besides Serendipidy) Honest good delicious food with plenty to choose from. We ate there twice and also had lunch at their sister café opposite. Definitely worth the trip

Zucchinis is a lovely restaurant in the Timberlake organic village which is between Wilderness and Sedgefield. We ate lunch there twice when we holidayed in wilderness. The food is above average and portions are good. I found the prices reasonable. The one thing to look out for though is the monkeys who come out in their numbers to spectate while you eat. If you don't get concerned about this, you won't be too perturbed, but those with small children should watch out for this especially if they sit outside to eat, as the monkeys have been known to snatch food out of the kids hands. This can be scary.

We pulled into the village a little earlier than the shop owners and decided to take a look around while we waited for the shops to open. My 4 year old son was of course in his element with the kids area and the animals all around. It is one of the most interesting places I have been too and recommend anyone who is close by or driving past to make a stop. You won't regret it.
