We timed it well and happened to turn up as the gate was being opened. We were allowed in as they were trying to set up for a weeks stay. The host were very welcoming and explained a lot as we walked through the place. I added some new photos. You can follow us Wandering Wilson Adventures on Insta & Facebook
