    This is a great place to stay - fantastic house, with big grounds and lovely outdoor spaces to enjoy on long summer nights. I only wish that we had more time to stay there!

    We arrived on a cold winters day to the fire already going and it being toasty warm inside. We loved it!!! Our kids had the best time paying outside and we're amused for hours. This was our first proper family holiday and we are already discussing the possibility of doing it again next year!!!!

  • What a lovely place to stay at again

    What a lovely place to stay at again. Loved sitting outside listening to the birds in trees. Thanks for having the fire set, it really helped as we didnt get there till 7pm. So we lite fire than we into town to get takeaways and the house was lovely and warm. Our son did catch a huge kahawia by the bridge.
