Secluded cottages surrounded by magnificent rose gardens in the summer along with large trees, gums flowers - a must to just visit and wander. The bird life and animals many to photograph. Relax and unwind in your choice of cottages each with their own private large verandas. The Retreat / Studio is a large comfortable accommodation with wonderful views across the lake and gardens in a more contemporary design. Be completely undisturbed in an idyllic hideaway of your own for romantic, or just get away and enjoy the countryside together. Soak up the starry nights with a glass of wine on a lazy verandah, and view the gardens lit up with a range of lights at night like no other property in the surrounds that are just beautiful, or play a round of just for fun golf on the on-site 9 hole par 3 fun golf course.
