Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful setting, great accommodation We have just returned from a wonderfully relaxing 3 days at Scott's Hut. We took out 2 small dogs who also had a thoroughly enjoyable time. Everything we could want was provided and the large house paddock the dogs could run in and explore was greatly appreciated. Would thoroughly recommend to anyone, the peace and serenity was just beautiful and the gardens delightful. Will definitely go back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Choice for a Relaxing Holiday We were looking for a property that can provide an opportunity for our young children to have a glimpse of farming experience, and we were not at all disappointed with our choice of this property. It gave us access to some farming experience with few sheep, cows, hens and also the farm dogs. The property is spacious and we loved the veranda covering each side of the house. The kitchen and other amenities provided good value for money. Driving across a small creek to access the property was an exciting start to our stay, particularly for our children. Cassandra, the owner of the property, showed us everything we needed to know about the property and was happy involve our children in feeding farm animals when requested. We believe this is an excellent location for a relaxing holiday, anytime of the year. We are already making plans to have a return trip sometimes soon!
