Monday, September 22nd, 2014

Floyd our beautiful retriever has won another heart!  Keira fell in love with the family dog who visited the Drok family at their cottage each day. Although Keira liked Edith the donkey, Max and Kalypso the alpacas, Floyd is still the firm favourite!

Hear from our guests

I can only imagine the amount of hard work involved in keeping this place in such superb condition.  Everything was immaculate, the chooks had eggs every day, plenty of trout in the lake.  We were lucky enough to catch and return 6 nice trout in 2 days ( fly fishing with muddler minnow)

Trout chasing fry early morning and in the evening.

Beautiful for fishing.

Good luck

Thanks guys, will be back.
