It’s terrible, I would not recommend this accommodation to anyone. I got charged for not even staying there. The place does not even look as advertised. The rooms are not of a hotel standard, it’s just waist of money in my opinion.

We had a great time at the lodge, staying in the silo. It's a really magical place. The wildlife on the land was amazing and the drive into the lodge was incredible. Thanks so much for the beautiful accommodation and the dogs were lovely too.
