A Mid-week break

2 weekends booked out.
However if you are now retired and wanting a wonderful mid week break, come and enjoy a tranquil time watching otters cavorting in the river below you. 2 families have experienced that joy.

A Green Drought

Although we are experiencing a drought, as is occurring all over the country,  ours is a green drought. The indigenous forest is looking stunning and a recent rain has the river flowing beautifully. 

Don’t miss out. Book a night or two.

An escape to the country

The countryside is looking beautifully lush, despite the fact that our rainfall figures are not great. We have not been experiencing the heavy storms which have hit PMB, Hilton & Howick this last week. 

The cottages are available in the new year. If you fancy a few days in the country during the holidays, please contact us

An Interesting Day.

  • 100 mile race from Howick to Benvie and return, with participants running through Braco and passed Twin Falls
  • The funeral of Ivy Ngubane with bus loads of visitors using the same access road.
  • A Hail storm. Very unpleasant for runners and mourners.
  • Open Gardens at Braco so hail unpleasant for garden visitors. But everyone loved the gardens and are keen to spread the word and visit again.
  • We drove up to Twin Falls to ensure the cottages hadn’t any leaks, and to take additional blankets up.

All in all a full day.
