Kate and her husband, Dan, found themselves starting a new life on the Secret Coast in June 2018, a long way away from Cape Town, South Africa, where they grew up.

Somehow, between setting up home, welcoming their baby daughter, Emma, and working for a global palliative care charity, Kate found time to set up Northern Lights Cakery, designing and baking spectacular cakes for all occasions.

When she’s not working, Kate loves to visit the secret waterfalls in Glendaruel, and hike through the forests with Dan, Emma land their dog, Snowie.

Moving to the Secret Coast is a decision that Kate and Dan are delighted they made.


“We are so fortunate to have this incredible natural beauty on our doorstep,” says Kate. “I love the feeling of space as I look down the loch, the adventure of walking through the forest, and the strong sense of community with the amazing people who live here.”
