Other things to note about staying at Red Box Retreat

Red Box Retreat is located on our 10 acre property, which is also comprised of several paddocks, a few sheds as well as our main house.    Depending on when you stay, we may have sheep, cows and alpacas on the property, as well as chickens and perhaps if you're lucky the odd lamb or calf.  

Our main house is far enough away from the retreat to ensure your privacy,  but close enough that we're always available should you need anything during your stay.
