  • The property location was stunning

    The property location was stunning. The view from the kitchen was so lovely and it was really private and quiet. The house was huge and accommodated our four families well. The DVD collections were an awesome addition and we loved using the fireplaces! We all decided we would love to come back and stay again for longer!

    Lovely and warm with plenty of space for 10 of us - the main shower was somewhat temperamental, but overall it was a lovely property. Would definitely go there again.

    This is a great place to stay for a large group or family. Heaps of space to spread out and lots of areas for kids to play or watch movies. Beds were comfy, house was very warm and cosy, there are more movies here than you could ever imagine to choose from :) Kitchen was well stocked and large. A great house for a relaxing holiday.
