    Wonderful place to stay, family friendly and safe with a wonderful garden space, very clean and tidy on arrival. Lovely and close to the lake, and the adjacent reserve is awesome for evening cricket games. We will return next year!

    We really enjoyed the location and feel of this property, the only quality was the lack of WiFi. As travellers for a month from out of the country, we could have benefited from WiFi, though we understand the "get away from it all" feel. It certainly wouldn't stop us from coming back or recommending this place to others, though, but something to be aware of. There was SO much information on local activities that we kept busy during our entire stay and everything was great!!
