          A friendly welcome from the owner, a warm place to cook and eat while it rained and we didn't have to unpack the vehicle - everything we needed was provided.

          Nicely appointed facilities, a cut above the self-catering norm

          It's a very nice place for camping. There are decent facilities and a pretty well-equipped kitchen. There are never too many people, so it is quiet and clean. There are braais and they sell braai wood. The views are lovely. It is just outside the town, so easily accessible but peaceful. Can totally recommend.

          The Shed has everything we needed for a weekend's stay. Enjoyed staying there. Cosy room, welcoming hosts, well equipped, beautiful view. Nice fireplace but open area a bit chilly.

          Peaceful and quiet. Ablution block and communal kitchen well maintained. Everything I needed was catered for. I was in a none 4x4 motorhome and the roads and entrance are not the best. Also signage needs to be improved as I was on the place before I realized it and had to drive on before I could turn. Also entrance is only from 1 direction. Owners very friendly and accommodating, I have cats with me and though the place is not pet friendly we managed.
