Saturday market under a tree canopyGood healthy food. Very basic but great environment.Don't expect anything fancy. A no frills offering.

Owner run with a distinct emphasis on sustainability, ecology and run ethically and professionally. Amazing pizzas, mad forest walks and a touch of the shire, must visit

A real gem of Morgan Bay. The Campsites are covered in large indigenous trees which are full fo bird life. The trails are a fantastic way to explore the natural wonders of the area.The facilities are super - built with sustainability and minimal impact in mind - the bungalow above the main office is a must! Sean and the team go out of their way to make you feel welcomed and educate you on the local fauna and flora of the area.There is a restaurant/cafe on site and they have amazing pizzas do try them you won't regret it!Close enough to the beach but further away enough from the main hustle and bustle of the village centre.Can't wait to go back!

Rustic done right! Very nice camp sites, with or without electricity. Lush trees to shade your camp, plenty quirky ablustions, and perhaps the best pizza in Morgan Bay. Twin ply toilet paper... Just a bonus.

Serenity and beautiful open spaces. Big trees and the wildlife ( mostly birds) are all over the place. The owners are wonderful people and the fresh local produce is definitely worth.

Campsite and self-catering cottages on grass in a magic-seeming forest setting. There is even a fairytale walk through the forest for both young and old. The owners are artistic and environmentally friendly. The buildings are like fairyland using recycled materials. Excellent pizza meals and bar. The shop has books and curios, as well as a library. Highly recommended.

One of the most beautiful and unique places you could wish to visit. The pizzeria and camp site are family run, providing amazing service.The camp site looks onto a small river and is gorgeous. With only a two minute drive to the stunning Morgan bay beach this place is beyond deserving a five star review.
