                  Thank you for a very enjoyable stay this weekend! The Cottage was gorgeous and perfectly secluded. We would love to be back in the future.

                  The owner was very friendly, moved us to the sleeper room with aircon and television. The two bedroom is stipulated that there is a tv, but none in the room. The TV in the sleeper only had two channels and cannot be changed from the room, you have to request it from the owners and if they are not there, then you have only the one channel. This is very irritating when I am not a fisherwoman, my husband is the fisherman, and I came to just relax and have a lie around weekend. Maybe just a upgrade on their tv or to stipulate in the advertising.

                  we thoroughly enjoyed our stay - its very simple, making it a restful staythe only thing we feel should be mentioned is that there is an additional fishing fee per person per day which should be noted when booking

                  It was beautiful! The sleeper cottage we were in over looked the dam and it was stunning! Gary was also very helpful.

                  If you want to get in touch with yourself and nature. Or just want to be alone with your SO... this is the place to be. Its huge, I loved it. Its a good value for money and the people are friendly.
