    For a squadron of 10 young adults we found this place fit us perfectly. It was easy to share the generous space and the fireplace kept all of our rooms toasty warm! All the facilities were very modern and we made ourselves at home immediately. An awesome homestead for those who aren't afraid of getting into the country

  • Lovely peaceful location very much away from it all

    Lovely peaceful location very much away from it all. Kids loved the animals on the doorstep, and the games room in particular. Well equipped for 2 families to stay at the same time. Will definitely be back!
