Nice view and lovely open spaces. Lots of space to spread out. No mobile coverage which is a good thing. Great place for well behaved dogs who don't mind horses. Sue was a lovely host. Happy to go again with friends.

The place was just so welcoming and beautiful. Camping in the middle of horses, goats & sheeps. Bouldering rocks, hiking, lovely nature. Camping in a dream. My husband and I + our 2 dogs loved this experience. Will definitely recommend it to others. We will be back!! Love what you're doing Sue!

You cannot leave anything but five stars for this Youcamp. Sue and Paul are the nicest people. Plenty of room to camp, plenty of places to explore, the rocks gave me the feel that I was on a movie set they are so monolithic. Well located to Gatton and the zoo. Ahhh the serenity.
