    While we went on a cold wet winter weekend, the heaters and electric blankets all worked and there was plenty of firewood for the fire. Fabulous.

  • It is a basic property but very well maintained and tidy

    It is a basic property but very well maintained and tidy. All the basics were supplied right down to linen, coffee, tea, sugar and oil. The kitchen has everything you need and the rooms are comfortable - there are even electric blankets. The toilet and shower block is right next to the shearers quarters so it really isn't a big deal. This sunny spot is very scenic, at the foot of a range of hills, with a very nice river running next to the property.
