Other than the tranquil photos, the word that appealed to me was "affordable".

Other than the tranquil photos, the word that appealed to me was "affordable". This tidy, clean and cozy bach set on a farm was the perfect location for my family weekend away from the busyness of life. Thank you Greehock farm, we will be back.

Property is spacious, very clean, well located.

  • 5 of 5

Property is spacious, very clean, well located. It rained almost the entire time I was there, but I was warm and comfortable and when there was a break in the weather, I popped down for a walk along the beach. Overall, a very relaxing stay for me (I was on my own) But there is loads of room for a large family and an outdoor bbq if the weather permits
