I thought I better give the wee hut where we stayed it’s own post. It deserved it. It was teeny tiny, all one room with a huge fire place, a wood fire stove, 2 small hotplates, a small tin bathroom out the back and best of all….a heated slab and good quality linen! It has been built by the owner Brett in the traditional method that huts were made back in the day and similar to many of them that are scattered throughout the hiking trails in the mountains. It was such a good reminder that you don’t need much – the girls absolutely adored sleeping in the same room as us and slept more soundly than they have in weeks – we had 4 plates, 4 cups, 4 knives and forks. It’s all you need. Would the novelty wear off? Of course it would, but for 3 nights it was perfect.
There were chooks wondering about, eggs to collect, fish to catch right out the front, a jetty on which to sit and sip a wine on, a verandah for reading and an outside fire that had me in heaven – chopping, collecting wood, setting the fire and then cooking a simple dinner on it – that is my idea of simple perfection!
If you are ever down that neck of the woods I would highly recommend staying there for a night or two. One thing though the website made out that you were in the middle of nowhere (which you are) but the owners house is also on the property (and the neighbours house quite close too) and if wanted to be totally on your own then this isn’t the place for you. I don’t do B&B’s polite chit chat well and this was the only downside for me. You could only do it if there were 4 of you – it’s a tight squeeze – but oh so cute. I’d love to go back and have a crack in the winter months just to have a chance of waking up to some snow!
