    Unfortunately our stay was very short and we didn't get to see everything. The house is basic, but has everything. It's easy to find and in a lovely, quiet location. It would be nice to sit on the deck and enjoy the views :)

    We stayed here last month and it was wonderful , great rural setting but only a short drive from town. Kids loved being able to run around and explore while the adults enjoyed a few "quiet' ones on the deck....Comfy inside and will definitely stay here again.

    This property provided us with the ability to leave the group and take a walk to clear our heads of the days play. It was also nice to socialise outside and take in the beautiful views.
