The property is very neat, tidy & modern.

  • 5 of 5

The property is very neat, tidy & modern. There is always a fire lit before we enter. The rooms have heaters and high quality linen so it's very warm & cozy. The beds are very comfy as well. The grounds are extensive with beautiful views & walking tracks. The cottage is situated far enough from the main house that you can be noisey without disturbing anyone. We absolutely love this home away from home. Simply the best.

Traditional homestead in special location, with everything well set up.

Traditional homestead in special location, with everything well set up. Cosy thanks to powerful log-burner and plenty of firewood. We were looked after very well and had a great stay. Worth staying longer than just a few days.

Charming cottage and so cosily warm. Loved the out-of-town location, privacy and views. Well presented and equipped - the fire was burning on arrival and we settled in comfortably straight away. Would love to visit again sometime.
