Typical kiwi Bach, best fire and lits of wood thus warm & cozy. All necessary appliances available. Only issue was we turned the waterpump off accidentally hence after we phoned Denis ( who is lovely) to sort the issue there were bits in the tap water. Hence we boiled water or used bottles of H2O.
We loved our stay at Peel Forest. What a beautiful spot. Great house, warm and cozy and clean and so relaxing and private. Loved all the bush walks, even in the mud and rain..the kids had the best holiday ever. Had 5 days so got to spend a day at Tekapo hot pools and ice skating. What a great part of the country. Thank you!
