Taking a break is very important! If you fail to take breaks from your busy life, you'll gradually erode productivity, perform poorly, diminish enjoyment, and eventually burn out. What exactly do we mean by taking breaks? We are not talking about taking a lavish vacation or seeking respite from your responsibilities. Taking a break from work or personal life might not even be an option for most.

The Original Tiny House - Shepherd Huts date back as far as 200 years ago in Britain by shepherd's who followed their flocks to different parts of the countryside. Today they fit well into the landscape of the historic surrounds of "Summerlea" where they offer a unique and carefree alternative to your traditional hotel room.
In a setting of tranquil surroundings under and among mature gumtrees the Gypsy Style Campsite has an energy of it's own.
Summerlea is a unique setting and offers you the opportunity to relax and enjoy a slower pace away from the busy world we live in.
The huts are a cosy option with a rural edge, the Gypsy Style Campsite is home to two beautiful shepherd huts, hand crafted to keep you toasty in winter and cool in the summer.
Each hut offers a cast iron double bed, which has been styled to reflect a feeling of Boho or Gypsy feel. Boasting those little extras - top of the range memory foam mattresses, low-wattage electricity, as well as a cosy en-suite. The en-suite includes shower and eco friendly toilet.
The huts are fully insulated to ensure your comfort whatever the season along with reverse cycle heating and cooling.
When the sun goes does down in the evenings the campsite and surrounds come alive. Lit to showcase a majestic 40 metre gum which is central to the gardens.
The outdoor entertainment area offer's a place to mix and mingle and a place to relax or use our BBQ to prepare your supper.
In the cooler months when fire restriction season allow, we can also recommend some time spent around the fire-pit.
