Comments received from guests:

Just a note of feedback after our stay at 18 Mile last weekend – we all had an absolute ball! The kids had some much needed space and freedom and made the most of it all. We adults also loved being there, especially the outdoor fire and chance to sit around and do very little, since the kids needed no entertainment from us! We are all keen to arrange another weekend in summer, if not before. Please pass on our thanks to Jan for having us and checking in on us when we arrived. You will be hearing from us again!

There will be many more "next times" - we just love it down there in the Lost World Valley, and had exceptionally relaxing and enjoyable time.
