  • Thank you so much for a brilliant experience! Gavin and Cindy were so helpful and friendly and we absolutely loved the kayak trip! Great gear and beautiful relaxed experience. Totally recommend! Note - your butt will get wet!
  • From the time we arrived we were treated as very welcome guests. The rooms are clean and beautifully appointed. Cindy and Gavin were never too busy to chat - they are truly in the correct business! We had ordered dinner for our first night as we were arriving late - well Cindy provided a superb 3-course meal of exceptional taste and value. After our day one ride, we took their advice and ordered pizzas before heading out on the boat trip. Gavin has a wealth of information and is truly passionate about the area - a stunning trip with magnificent views unobtainable from the road. Well worthwhile. We will have to revisit to test the kayaking another time. An extra special experience.
