                                              The Kids enjoyed the trampoline and meeting tanna, we thought the toilets needed a slight clean up and more toilet paper but we did love the way you built the cob cottage and the property in general. We did have a question about what bird makes that metallic sound... thanks for the lovely stay and just want to say we also were advised by coast to coast to stop at your amazing paradise you have created.

                                              The people are generally nice and the beach is close enough.Unfortunately, the loft room didn't make for a pleasant experience. It is the cheapest option, but was even smaller than I expected, and very poorly ventilated. The two tiny windows at one end are ineffective. We arrived on a warm day after a long drive, and stepped into a wall of sweltering air in the room. It is situated above the gift shop and near the restaurant kitchen, so all that hot air rises into the loft room. A small fan would improve the situation drastically.To their credit, the other options at this establishment look...

                                              Lovely shady camp sites, rustic but perfectly adequate facilities, ice cold beer, very friendly and helpful hosts. Enjoyable stay.

                                              Yellowwood Forest is a relaxed and beautiful setting for a few days away. It’s very family friendly but I imagine could also be a great spot for friends or couples to escape the hustle of life for some tranquility. I have camped there several times and love the environmentally friendly buildings and vibe as well as the home made pizzas. This time we stayed in the cob cottage - which is beautiful and magical. I thoroughly recommend this place.

                                              Need to sort out showers. Its hot or cold. Need to be set. Bush camp very wet and muddy around it.
