  • I thought the property was beautiful! It is very well looked after...

    I thought the property was beautiful! It is very well looked after and very lovely. I did get a little confused as I thought it had 4 bedrooms but it has two bedrooms and then two pull out couch/beds but easily slept 4 of us and has a very cute little nook that has been converted to a small single bed for kids.

  • beautiful rural location surrounded by birds, but only a very short distance...

    beautiful rural location surrounded by birds, but only a very short distance to the centre of town. The house was very homely with plenty of space and warm, great fire! My only disappointment was we were counting on using the BBQ for a 21st dinner but there was no gas and it was dirty.
