We stayed 2 nights in a large group, staying in 2 of the three bedroom lodges. The views over the vineyards to the mountains were lovely and the rooms very comfortable, clean and spacious. The kitchen had everything we needed, and we barbecued both nights, feeding 12 with ease. Mike the manager...

My family had 4 days in Vintners retreat, and we enjoyed a really relaxing stay. Lovely accommodation, enjoyed the pool, the fibre internet was fast and kept the kids' iPads happy, and nice and centrally located to the wineries.
