Full Description:

The approach to the seclusion of Arcadia is through green, temperate rainforest. The cottages are surrounded by rambling gardens with 100 year old oaks, southern beeches and cathedral high mountain ash. In winter the camellias bloom in pink, red and white, in spring rhododendrons flower in their hundreds. Wild ducks paddle on Arcadia's ornamental ponds. Beyond the gardens, distance gives the ranges a watercolour wash of blue. The feeling at Arcadia is relaxing and enchanting.
