Family break 18th-21st September
Beautiful house in a beautiful location, the house and cottage were very well equipped, there was nothing we couldn’t find that we needed 😃 the owners were very good, let you get on with things but were there if you needed them and Imelda baked us a fantastic chocolate fudge cake 😋 such a nice touch, we would definitely stay here again and definitely recommend to anyone else 👍🏼 Thanks Terence and Imelda ❤️

Weekend away
Overall our stay here was delightful. The property was very homely and inviting, a perfect home from home Within a beautiful setting. The property owners was extremely helpful and accommodating, highly recommended.

4/5 Good

Cards players weekend away
The cottage was in a very good location. It was clean and tidy but quite chilly. We were staying on a particularly cold weekend but it would have been nice to have a fire or some additional heating in the main living room. The house and cottage accommodated us well but the kitchen is well equipped but quite small. We appreciate that the spiral staircase is part of the original building but found it a bit tricky and think that anyone with mobility problems needs warning about how steep it is. The owners were very friendly and helpful and the cupcakes were a nice touch. We enjoyed our visit to this area very much. Thank you.

4/5 Good

Nice house
We were a family of 11 away for the weekend. The 5th bedroom is out of the house and down the street so this was a slight negative however the lounge room was fab for us all to be together. We enjoyed the dining area however the stairs were very dangerous and we struggled getting up and down a few times (however there is a sign to say they can come and help you if needed). Thankyou for the lovely cakes! And the lollys were lovely for the children.

5/5 Excellent

Great property and really nice owners
