We had a great stay with Barry and Diane. They were so accommodating. The rooms were spotless and comfy warm beds. The breakfast was outstanding with Diane's homemade fruit compotes from their garden. Highly recommended!

I stayed overnight with Diane and Barry prior to spending a day being guided on the local rivers with Barry in search of brown trout. Diane and Barry went out of their way to make me feel at home and Barry went above and beyond in my day on the rivers.

We spent 4 nights (including 2 half day's guided fishing) at Wentworth Heights and found the whole experience most memorable. The accommodation including the wonderful breakfasts (especially Dianne's home made muesli) was of a very high standard considering the tariff with the hosts even booking an excellent local restaurant for us one night. Barry is a patient and affable guide,... More
