The Old Schoolhouse accomodation was very comfortable, food was amazing and the scenery was magnificent. Only issue was poor water pressure when using any taps in the accomodation.

A friend suggested we visit and we discovered this oasis in the middle of (almost) nowhere. Beautiful food, great service and pottery. Highly recommended.

This place is a little off the beaten track but oozes uniqueness in accommodation, loads of personality and plenty of nature to spend time in. Amazing food at the cafe for both dinner and breakfast and customer service second to none. Fantastic atmosphere and would recommend to family and friends for sure 😊
