The spot was amazing. We were lucky with the weather and were able to put tents up. If the weather had been bad we could easily have stayed in the barn though.
Awesome slice of Paradise, very well presented and run in a very pleasent manner by professional People . Thank you for charing your lovely place with my family.??
The property is exactly as advertised. The location is amazing - right on the river and so peaceful. Everyone really enjoyed themselves.
Stunning, relaxing spot right on the river. Peaceful, private location yet conveniently close by to Warkworth. Loved the barn accommodation, it was clean and homely. Thanks very much for a lovely couple of days!
Ever wished you could have a whole camp site to yourself? This felt just like that. It is a stunning spot on the Puhoi River, which we had for our exclusive use- many games of Touch on the banks of the river, kayaking till after dark, bbq's under the stars, afternoon naps in the shade of the trees, fishing at the crack of dawn. Space for kids and dogs to run their hearts out. Simply heavenly.
