My family all needs to heal from the trauma of the last six months and I can’t Imagine a better place to stop, reflect and focus on the good stuff.


We would like to thank you so, so, so much for the amazing weekend we just spent at beautiful Bramare.  What a special place! We woke this morning to kangaroos outside our windows, and as it was our son's 10th birthday today, it was a truly wonderful way to start the day. After a tough year, it was so lovely to just relax and enjoy ourselves and have a little celebration of our family.


Thank you from the bottom of my heart. My family and I stayed at Bramare recently and we are so blessed. Thank you for the generosity. My family was able to get away from our busy schedule and forget everything for a period of time, we were able to rest and relax. I feel so peaceful.


Over the Easter period I had an amazing opportunity to visit a much loved home of my friend Judy Burley. Little did I ever imagine 18 years ago when we lost Judy to this terrible disease, would I ever be a beneficiary of this.
