We can't say enough about this place. The setting is lovely and the cabin is great. Every thing you could possibly want or need. What really makes this place special though is the hospitality and thoughtfulness of the hosts. One of our best experiences

The Ringer's Cottage was a great place to stay. Dianne and John are great hosts. We felt so welcomed. The beds were comfortable and the place super clean with all the creature comforts. My teenage boys loved it and we all wished we could have stayed longer.

John and Dianne's cottage was above and beyond what we had read or expected from the reviews. Whilst it is simple in design, don't be fooled by that. This little place has everything you could possibly want. Great beds, linens, towels provided. Use of the swimming pool, total privacy, great, strong and fast wifi, xbox, fans in every room, air- conditioning in the bedrooms. Add to that, a backpack complete with picnic rug, tupperware containers for your picnic lunch if you visit one of the many beautiful national parks close by. We used this little house as our base for exploring Litchfield, Darwin and Katherine. It was perfect, especially if you have a hire car. Might be a bit out of the way if you don't. Open the fridge and find enough fresh eggs, bacon, milk, jams, butter, strawberries, mushrooms, orange juice and a loaf of bread to boot. The table had a selection of cereals. The bench provided a pod coffee maker with a selection of coffees. All complimentary. I couldn't have dreamed of a better venue and for the small price asked....don't hesitate. You will not regret booking this little cottage. 30 mins easy drive to the airport and 5 mins drive to a large woolworths supermarket. Winning! Thanks Di and John for superb hosting.

This is such a lovely homely retreat with every thing you need and more. Set in a peaceful rural location, but close to Kakadu, Litchfield and Berry Springs. Friendly helpful hosts which made for a wonderful stay and one I would highly recommend.

words cannot express how satisfied we are with our stay in their lovely and cosy home. the kitchen is well-equipped with everything we needed to cook/bake. we can even log into Netflix on tv! perfect for our "lazy" holiday. we had a tour around their farm and met their cute and friendly pets (you got to meet Cookie). away from the city but yet conveniently located. highly recommended! :)

Di and John's place is the perfect stop on our way to Kakadu. We got in really late but the directions were easy to follow. The fridge was stocked with delicious breakfast ingredients and plenty of it. Thank you so much!

Long term Territorians. We enjoy the outdoors and the tranquility of rural living. We enjoy fishing and the wonders that the NT has to offer. We enjoy meeting new people and providing with information of the Top End.
