Farm Life Fairy Tale

As we ambled along dirt roads surrounded by deep green pastures speckled with sheep and not much else, a sense of calm began to sink in. When we laid eyes on the Rosewood Farm stay Luxe tent on the hill, set on a sprawling hillside with unblemished views off into the distant valley we knew the solitude was exactly what we needed.

We strolled the surrounding hillside, breathed in the fresh air filled with birdsong, spotted a few kangaroos and just enjoyed going slow.

The bathtub on the deck at sunset was a real highlight for me, but as the surreal pastels faded to black and then everything turned frosty white, the heaters drew us inside the tent, and once you hit that four-poster, you are done! The bed is like floating inside a warm fluffy cloud.

I could have left most of my things in the car, it honestly felt like rosewood had everything you could imagine! From coffee machines and a NutriBullet to Jenga, yoga mats and a hairdryer not to mention the fresh farm eggs and bath bombs!! I could keep going...

The whole experience felt like we were in a page from an old fairy tale that I could do all over again in a heartbeat
