The cabin has lovely light, is warm in winter and is tastefully decorated. There is a small desk for lap-top, writing etc.
As mentioned above, we have two dogs, Harvey & China. Harvey is a Golden Cocker Spaniel and China is a Spoodle. They both like to welcome people with loud barking. They do not bite and once guests have arrived and met them, they will settle. Dogs are separated from cabin so do not have access to guests unless guests would like to meet them.
We also have some chooks that give us fresh eggs.
While the cabin is generally set up for two people to share one queen bed, we do have facility to make up another small bed on the floor. Be advised it will not be of the same luxury as the queen, but suitable for child or small person to sleep comfortably.
We also have a range of items to meet the needs of babies and toddlers if required to make your stay a little easier.

Baby bath also available. Guest AccessGuests have their own private access to the cabin from a communal car parking area behind the property. Please note we have been in the process of adding drainage to the entry driveway and the paving is not yet completed. It does not interfere with access but it is not as 'pretty' an entry as owners would like at present. It is a work in progress!
There is ample room for guest vehicles. There is also lock up garage space for bicycles or motorcycles if required.
The main house deck has a six person hot-tub (spa?, jacuzzi?) which can be utilised by cabin guests during reasonable hours.
Guests can easily access the local village shops, restaurants and cafes on foot via the the back entry or through the large and splendidly gardened front yard, which also includes Koi filled Japanese style fish ponds and waterfalls, decidous trees, flowers, an extensive variety of flowering native plants, friendly chickens and a friendly and harmless golden cocker spaniel. A journey this route may also give you the opportunity to meet the ponies next door.
There is a shady outdoor table and seats if you wish to picnic under our Golden Ash in the peace of the garden. Interaction with GuestsWe are happy to engage as much or as little as guests wish.
If you just want peace and quiet and your own space for a weekend; you've got it. If you want advice or assistance, or to share a meal we're also open to that. There is usually one person at home and guests are welcome to approach with questions or requests. We are both from helping professions so if guests need local information we'd be glad to assist.
We also love to BBQ, smoke fish and meats and to socialise. If guests would like to join us for a barbeque dinner on the covered main deck, or to utilise a smoker for your freshly caught fish that can also be arranged on request.
The main house deck has a hot-tub which can be utilised by cabin guests during reasonable hours. It can be totally private and owners will not use deck while guests are using Hot Tub.
