    We had a great time! See you again. Highly recommended. We stayed in the retreat but walked to the other places. All good. Dinner was most enjoyable. The retreat is the most interesting and unusual building. Most of all we were made very welcome

    Wonderful place to stay with excellent dinner - delicious food and wine - yummy breakfast, comfortable bed, and great company from the hosts David and Sue. 4wd tour of the farm was great fun! We came away feeling very spoilt.
