Hi Allan, you did have very unusual weather, and you were offered to change your accommodation to the train carriages which have air-conditioning, but you refused (without even looking inside). You also refused the free night stay. You were given extra fans. There is a fridge in each cabin, and plenty of water on tap. We even have ice in the tray in the freezer - so lots of opportunity for cold drinks. We have a swimming pool to cool down in, and as you said, the air-conditioned pub is just a short drive away. We are sorry that you did not enjoy your stay, but eastern Australia had the hottest summer on record, ever, and you were with us on the hottest day of the hottest summer! We are occupied throughout the year and in winter, our log fires are a real hit.

We had a lovely couple of nights here staying in one of the cabins. It's a lovely open property with freedom to explore. The cabin was very nicely presented. We had a great time getting to know all of the alpacas, goats, chickens and the peacock. The managers Aimee and Fiona
