    Quiet and peaceful location and a very cute cottage. Loved the gardens, the old homestead and the history of the place. Great spa - would love to come back in the summer when the pool is in action :)

    Very cosy & comfortable accommodation with stunning surroundings. Loved the fact it was originally a pioneer house from the 1860's!
