The two and a half hour drive was worth the Wait!!!! We were welcomed warmly by the owner and had a fantastic stay. Our two little boys enjoyed the open space and fun activities. It has a warm, friendly atmosphere and it was a relaxing get away . Absolutely amazing facilities with humble and friendly owners .A real dream vacation.

Loved our weekend away. Thank you David for the welcome and great hosting. Clean, peaceful and all what you need for a quiet weekend to re-group and recharge. Kids had a ball with all the animals they could visit and the swimming. They even did a hike - a far cry from all the TV games and movies they normally...

On Wednesday, whilst guiding a client on a climbing tour to Montagu, I found myself in need of a place to stay after the bookings I had made turned bad elsewhere. I phoned Rainbow Glen.
