We are an off grid farm and the train is only 12 volt so you can charge your mobile or torch but its not suitable for hairdryers or coffee machines.
The train is not insulated but there is a gas heater in the lounge area and lots of heavy donnas in the bedroom for winter - true glamping style! The Shepherd's Hut is insulated.
Winter will be cold and summer can be hot - so be prepared for the elements.
Bookings: Spring, Summer & Autumn 2+ nights bookings we take. Winter we take 1 night bookings and our booking calendar will stipulate this.

Road access is by standard 2WD & 4WD but you will need detailed directions. Our road is not suitable for motorbikes. Our neighbours kids ride their horses on our driveway so keep an eye out for them. Our road is a dirt track road with potholes and surrounded by thick bush. It is steep but only in a small section. It looks rough but any standard 2WD car can get up it. Low cars will need to go super-slow.
The wedding pick up bus will have to pick you up and drop you off near our letterbox. You will then need to drive to the train. Our driveway is not suitable for buses.
We have limited wi-fi (unreliable) and there is no mobile reception in Laguna, which is a great excuse to unwind from it all. If you pop up to the house we can sort out the wi-fi and we have a fixed landline phone.
Interaction with guests
We are here for your arrival and departure and to show you around. I will give you a quick tour of the kitchenette and also how the waterless-composting toilet works, 12V lighting plus a couple of other lovely features. We move around the farm often to get things done, which we can involve you in as much, or as little, as you like. For first time visitors best to check-in before it gets dark so you can navigate our driveway.
Other things to note
We are off-grid & we love it. That means there are no toasters, hairdryers etc
