 Plenty of room for our families to stay - the extra bathrooms are a real bonus! Huge deck perfect for entertaining groups. Private and quiet. 

 Wonderful property for family get together, lots of space and wonderful outdoor area. Not too far from town, but far enough. Very elegant. 

 Property was beautiful! It has plenty of space. Great for events such as a bridal shower. Would be perfect for family get-togethers. Nice and central, an easy walk to town. Would recommend this place to anyone. 

 Wonderful property to stay at. Property is best suited to 8 people (3 couples & 2 singles) as unfortunately the bed in the "TV room" is a very small double pull out couch. We brought a large airbed with us so managed to sleep 4 couples & 2 singles nicely. Great facilities here. Not far to walk to town. Would definitely stay again! Thanks. 

  •  The TV couch/settee is small and we do say that so we leave extra bedding in downstairs cupboard for couch or airbeds which we also have. We can have up to 12 depending on configuration as we make up extra single beds it all depends on configuration. Thank you.
