Description [ correction ]

Owner run 5 luxurious self-catering cottages and a campsite, set in extensive and beautiful gardens on an 800 acre highland farm. Bar/Restaurant, hot showers and catering. We have landscaped the campsite so each group can have their own area. Larger trucks are restricted to set parking areas. If the campsite is really busy, travellers with their own trailers/facilities can request to bush camp on the farm. The Kenana Knitters Gift shop, a non-profit organisation, employing the local community is a 350 meter walk across the farm yards from the Kembu campsite to the Knitting Project. (Nov-11).
