Hi Angela,

Didn't get to say goodbye & thank you on Sunday before we left.

We had a great time on the weekend staying in your yurt.

Just loved everything about it-great setting, amazing decor & such a comfy bed with ever so soft doona & pillows.

You provided everything we could possibly have needed & we really enjoyed the fresh eggs you supplied, which we cooked up for breakfast on Sunday along with some bacon-delicious!

Being a dog lover I enjoyed Lily & Poppyl coming to visit us on numerous occasions for a pat-such friendly & well behaved dogs & a delight to have around.

We also enjoyed chatting to & patting the horse in the front paddock who was also very friendly.

Thank you for your thoughtful hospitality.

We hope to come & visit again in the future,

Kind Regards,

Fantastic property and perfect for a weekend away

  • 5 of 5

Lovely property and warmly welcomed Angela. Kitchen was well equipped with everything you could need. We loved being able to interact with all the dogs, but Willow, the 14 month old chocolate Labradore was a highlight

Excellent place for couple

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this lovely yurt! The setting of the place is amazing, perfect for a couple for a relaxing gateway. The host Angela and Andrew are amazing, providing everything we need, actually more than we expected (based on many of our experience). Love all the animals. They are all very friendly and welcoming. We had some very good time. Will definitely visit again.

Peaceful time out with everything on tap

  • 5 of 5

We loved our two night stay at this little yurt in the bush. It is equipped with everything anyone could need and has little extra touches to make you feel at home. A wonderful base to see the Brigadoon fest and to attend a wedding at Sylvan Glen. Highly recommended!
