Time to relax… in your own luxury permanent tent nestled by a lovely dam where the local ducks swim. With spectacular sunrises and gorgeous rural views, it is an innovative way to enjoy nature whilst still treading lightly on our environment. We have utilised environmentally friendly materials and services wherever possible while still providing a luxury glamping experience. With a piping hot shower in the ensuite, basic self catering facilities and fresh farm supplies for breakfasts, you will find the perfect base to explore the local wineries, art galleries or ride bikes along picturesque country roads. Our 100 acres provides opportunity to walk, kayak down the river, chat with the sheep, miniature goats, chickens and ducks or just sit back, throw a line in the dam and enjoy the view. ...Time to relax… in your own luxury permanent tent nestled by a lovely dam where the local ducks swim.
