We take pride in providing friendly hospitality and ensuring that your stay is a very special and memorable one. We know you won't be disappointed.
Amazing home away from home
From the moment we arrived our hosts Glenys and Kevin made us feel extremely welcome and so relaxed Our room was both stunning and comfortable with a private sitting room and full bathroom As part of a group the mud castle offered us the luxury of group sitting areas as well as cosy private areas Matt Dillow was allowed full run of the well appointed kitchen which allowed us all to participate in meal prep We thoroughly enjoyed both the mud castle and grounds and could not have wished for better hosts
Great place for our family reunion
We had a family reunion for around 40 people. Glenys and Kevin were great hosts and made the event a real celebration. The food and service were excellent and having a license meant we could run an open bar. We had 17 of staying at the Mudcastle for 2 days with ages between 7 and 76. It was such a great place for everyone to relax. Breakfasts were good too! Hope we can return one day.
Wake at MudCastle
Fantastic Hospitality for the whole extended families as we came together from overseas to have the 2 day wake for my father in law. The setting was perfect and appropriate for the occasion. The owners have made this place very special.
An amazing place!
What a special place! Two days before our wedding, our original venue had to cancel due to an incoming storm. In a panicked search for an alternate venue, we were thrilled to call Glenys & Kevin and learn that The Mudcastle was available on that date! Glenys & Kevin were incredible in helping us pull together all of the details for our big day on such short notice. In a great coincidence, the Mudcastle also had the perfect number of rooms to accommodate our wedding guests, so everyone loved staying in the intricately decorated and unique rooms! The Mudcastle itself is a beautiful work of art that reflects the heart & soul of its creators, and is surrounded by lush gardens and lots of gorgeous spots for photographs. In the morning, everyone was treated to a huge breakfast spread that included both hot and cold items, and was exactly what everyone wanted after dancing the night away! Thank you for making our wedding amazing on such short notice, Glenys & Kevin! Yours is a truly special home! Pieter & Lindsay …
A dream come true!
I have visited this unique handmade creation with our medium sized group of fellow travellers, we couldn't have asked for a better experience and welcoming hospitality. The settings, decor, location, surroundings, concept and most importantly the loving care and heart warming energy of Glenys and Kevin! I recommend with highest confidence that this will be a stop on your journey, you will never forget in your whole life. Thank you dear friends for having us and allowing us to live in a dream for almost a whole week. Eviatar .
