          The Oottages have all the basic necessities and are very comfortable. We could sit on the veranda and simply enjoy the lovely surroundings. A walk around the dam adds to the pleasure.

          unfortunately due to the drought the dam is almost non-existent which would have added to the attraction if full, but still our stay was great

          We loved waking to sunlight on the dam.The view changed every day and we loved the position of our cottage.
