We booked at the last minute and were overwhelmed with how lovely the place was. A little distance out of town, nestled way up the top on a range of hills. Absolute peace and quiet. Rainwater only, but it was sweet and clean. Management were lovely and allowed us to feed a range of friendly animals in the morning, including goats, sheep and alpacas. Clean bathroom, TV, BBQ facilities, kids playground. Loved it.

Loved our stay here. Beautiful, peaceful, well laid out location. Well appointed chalets that feel private despite sharing the communal space. Pleasantly surprised by the BBQ facilities. Also loved feeding the animals in the morning! Would definitely stay here again if we return to the area.

Great place. Not tried the chalet, but the campervan "ensuit" sites are awesome.
