It was like walking into someone's home! This large but very homely house welcomed us as we entered the kitchen, with a packet of chocolates and bottle of local Shiraz. We were then beckoned to explore it's rooms, filled with many decorative and sometimes whimsical delights ... reminiscent of a peaceful, innocent yesteryear.
There was no Wi-Fi, which would normally have excluded it from our selection, but there were drawers of games, shelves of books and boxes of toys everywhere one looked. We would love to book it again ... as a gift for our children when they visit from the UK.
We had a fantastic weekend away at Angas Springs. Barbara and Bernward were very warm and welcoming but also gave us privacy so we could relax and enjoy our time together as a family. We really appreciated the extra time they gave introducing our 6 year old to their donkeys, goats, chooks and duck. The home is very clean, spacious and comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped with pots/pans, cutlery, crockery etc. The shower has great water pressure and super hot water. The pantry also has all the basics needed PLUS they provided a generous welcome basket to get us started. It was the small touches that made our weekend so special, such as a little toy wheat bag waiting on our son's bed for him. We loved having the two fires which kept the home toasty despite it being very cold outside. There is also a Smart TV and some DVDs in the lounge room. The river runs along the bottom of the property which was fun to explore, the owners can also offer some advice on local walks which get you off the roads and along the river. You can easily walk down to Crystal Lake which has some fantastic sculptures. Longview Winery is a good walk away and we enjoyed spotting Kangaroos and farm animals along the way. We had a great meal at the Three Brothers Arms Hotel which is a short distance away as is another pub and café/shop. There is also a playground and skate park close by if travelling with kids. Highly recommend.
