Enjoyed staying at Copper Gate. Very clean spacious house. Beautiful view too. Lots of essentials provided. Even had toys for our children to play with. Had meals outside on a beautiful deck. A little orchard with apple trees in the back, large citrus area too. Feeding sheep was the highlight of our stay. Lots of fun. The whole property was very interesting with several good options of accommodations. Even glamping (glamorous camping) site, which was very charming. Thank you Roger and Adele!
This is a fantastic property for those travelling with small children - so much to see and do on the property, but also very drive to great cafes, orchards, galleries, beaches and vineyards. A bike with trailer supplied by the accommodation was another great way to explore the area with young children.
The main living area was slightly smaller than we had expected, but the rooms were clean and tidy, and in a great location for exploring the surrounding countryside. Roger and Adele were welcoming and friendly and we had a lovely stay.
