Not knowing the area, we made a reservation without any expectations. We were so impressed with the accommodation allotted to us and the general facilities and gardens which were meticulously maintained.
Owners, Anne and Joe are friendly and open people and they made our stay qui

Stayed in the two bedroom unit. Wonderfully clean and well appointed. It may be a motor camp but this was far superior to many motels we have stayed in and was fairly priced. Friendly and helpful hosts. Would recommend.

I'm sorry that you did not enjoy your stay. Your family member booked your accommodation for 3 nights in good faith, and you did not give them the same courtesy of letting them know you would only be here for 1 night. You let them down as they did their best to accommodate everyone. They also guaranteed your booking, which made them liable to pay for you whether you showed up or not. You also stopped other guests from having a bed. We are a camp ground, not a motel. We are all only human, which clearly the way you tried to avoid taking any responsibility at all was not a good look. As far as our cabins go, they are modern, fully insulated and double glazed with 1.5 KW oil heaters in a 10 sq mtr room. All our cabins must use communal facilities, this we cannot change unfortunately.

"stayed in non-self contained car- has all the facilities you need. There are also cabins available."
"Pitch your tent along the Northern treeline for shelter"
"The cabins are really small - The triple would be inadequate for any but a couple with a very young child. They are affordable - get two."
"The cabins are fantastic value for money...relax in a nice warm room and enjoy your break!"
"Get the cabin"
