We do not recommend guests drive their vehicle (or hire car) on any property farm road. In most cases insurance companies will not cover accidents or damage whilst on these roads. We accept no liability for any damages to your vehicle driven or stranded on any farm/access road.

Food Waste:

Our chickens would be delighted to eat any food you intend to dispose of during or at the conclusion of your stay. If you or your children do not wish to feed them personally, please leave it in a plastic bag on the kitchen counter and we will make sure the chooks get to enjoy it.

For the comfort of guests all accommodation at Silver Ridge Retreat is non-smoking.  Due to the high risk of fire, please also refrain from smoking in the bush and farmland areas.

Smoking is permitted outside, adjacent to cottages.

Please use the supplied tray for recycling.

If your cottage has one, please do not fill the spa baths more than 10 cm above the jets as operation of the Spa beyond this level may flood the cottage.
