The Lodges:
Are clean, warm and comfortable. Originally designed for school groups, with bunk beds and plenty of showers we have evolved to provide simple yet perfect accommodation for families, friends and large groups who embrace the great outdoors. Some rooms are kept as dorms (the kids love piling in in here!), some have been reconfigured for couples or singles, we can adapt to your needs. It’s not camping. It’s not glamping. It’s a unique place to stay and spend quality time in a beautiful place with loved ones.
More detail: There are 5 lodges, which can accommodate up to 40+ people depending on the group configurations. In order to maintain a low base price, we allocate rooms as required.
We can also accommodate horses at selected times of the year with stabling, turnout, use of arena and fantastic hacking.

The ‘Bush Camp Shelter’:
This is where you will dine, cook and relax, with plenty of space to play games or sit around a log fire, toasting marshmallows or gazing at the stars around the outdoor firepit. It's set away from the Lodges (~60m), and provides a beautiful, rustic, spacious area to relax and get away from it all.

Enjoy being off grid. There is no WiFi and little mobile reception – although you can get some networks if you head up to the top of the hill.


The kitchen is within the Bush Camp Shelter with a 6-ring gas cooker/oven, microwave, fridge and small freezer with plenty of utensils, pans, KFS.
The dining room is large with a wood burner, plenty of tables and benches and space for larger groups (up to 40) to dine inside or out.
