location, service and food are just perfect. This is the nearest private
accommodation option near to Giants Castle and also offers one of the

Castle Camp - The upside is that you are inside Giants Castle
Nature Reserve. The downside is that you are inside Giants Castle Nature
Reserve. You are as close as you can be to starting the hiking
trails but far from any of the other attractions available. And the

sunset an impossibility. If you do decide to stay here opt for the self
catering option and make sure you bring your own food with you. Giants
Castle camp offers self catering and has a restaurant.
