We loved our stay, Jack & Chris were great hosts! Campsite was exactly as described. A beautiful private spot perched on top of a hill overlooking the valley below. Perfect for a trip away from the hustle of city life. The stars at night were magical and the sunrise views in the morning even better.

We really don't want to write about how wonderful this fabulous property is.. because we'd almost want to keep it "for ourselves ". The views are stupendous, the campsite well prepared and the firewood we ordered was plentiful and dry. The camp oven experience was delicious with fascinating hosts!!

Just perfect! We just had the most fabulous 2 nights on this farm. Chris and Jack are brilliant hosts. If its privacy with a view to die for this is the place for you.

I loved it so much, I took the extended family back for Easter. Chris and Jack have worked so hard to make the campsites private, peaceful and with spectacular views, and fabulous campfires. Don't miss the camp oven dinner! So close to the city but a million miles from the hustle and bustle. Luv it!

We stayed at Belbrooke Farm for the Easter Weekend. The 3 sites are well positioned, away from each other, to allow campers privacy. The views of the mountains and lake are spectacular. The hosts are lovely people and very accommodating. We will be staying here again. Thanks Jack and Chris

Wy wife, myself and our two boys who are 6 and 9 enjoyed our 2 night stay very much. The farm is well situated and it was nice and peaceful. The hosts Jack and Chris are very friendly and helpful and involved our boys in some of the farm jobs like feeding the calves which they really enjoyed.

Jack and Chris are fantastic hosts who went out of their way to prepare our site "The Hide" on the day we arrived. The views and the seclusion were awesome. Our two teenage boys were able to ride their bikes everywhere and have fun fishing for catfish in the dam. We purchased the meat pack which was delicious.

Fantastic location. Chris and Jack welcomed us warmly and we were treated to everything we were after. Peace and quiet by a warm fire under the stars. Daylight was an extra treat with a long walk through the bush and by lagoons and the river. A superb camping spot.
