Peace and Quiet, close to the city!
This little plot of land was perfect for a few days of peace and quiet. My partner and I spent a few days on Leigh's property, and it was exatcly what we needed! The owners were very kind, and brought us some water as a complimentary gift. We enjoyed hiking around the grounds and essentially switched off to the city life we were so used to! We honestly didn't want to leave on the final day. Thank you for giving us such a peaceful location (during both rain and shine), we left feeling revived and relaxed (something I never expected to encounter after a camping trip). Thank you again!!

Stunning views
Absolutely loved this camp. Leigh was a fantastic host. The views were stunning when you hiked up the mountain. Lovely warm atmosphere. Very tranquil and easy to relax and enjoy. Easy to communicate with Leigh and friendly welcoming host. Highly recommend basic but worth it.
