The quality of the accomodation is seriously impressive - clean, comfortable, decent size but also really beautiful in an original, non-pretentious and clever style that gives the benefit of feeling like...More
The team that welcome you to Ant's Nest are extraordinary. Their attention to detail is perfect. From the animals to the food, from the horse rides to the fishing, from every dinner being in a different place. Everything is excellent. If you like camping there...More

I would also say that some places recommendations on tips are quite high, others less so. Ants is on the high side, but that said we tipped on the high side here as they are so lovely.
