I must admit the stay was absolutely lovely. We arrived very late on Friday as we stayed over in Mosel bay , for a few hours.On arrival , our room was claen , and available.Our Hostess was very friendly , and showed us to our Cottage. Cottage very comfortable , and has everything that you could possibly need . Slightly small , and the fact that there was no TV , was a bit unsatisfactory.

Unfortunately it was raining and cold during our two days stay, so couldn't really take advantage of the deck and tranquil view. The cottage was beautifully furnished, with everything we needed. The air con worked fantastically and we were warm. The owners were extremely helpful. Would recommend this establishment to all. Thank you.

We stayed overnight en route elsewhere in a Chalet and a Cottage as a family travelling with granny. The cottages are small but adequate for an overnight and have a well equipped kitchenette. The Chalet had 2 nice sized bedrooms (one queen, one twin) and was great for a family, with decent sizedAircon and heating ensures you don't get hot in summer or freeze in winter. Chalets over look a dam. The campsite is far enough away that it shouldn't be too disturbing when busy. Also looks lovely with individual ablutions and nice green grass.
