5/5 Excellent

Relaxing stay
We had a lovely stay at Springwater. Great kitchen facilities with a nice fire in the living room. Lovely to walk around the beautiful grounds and sit out on the back deck.

5/5 Excellent

Bush getaway.
Lovely, quiet get away in the hills. Lots of things for the kids to explore, we even found a big wombat burrow!
