  • The property was as described

    The property was as described. Extras were appreciated (milk, cereal, fruit) and a lovely bottle of wine. Heating was on when we arrived on a cold rainy afternoon.

  • The property was beautiful, cozy and comfortable with everything you needed

    The property was beautiful, cozy and comfortable with everything you needed. We are looking forward to coming back in summer time to spend sometime outside in the garden. One of the best places I've stayed in when using bookabach.

  • Great house, very charming every thing you would need for a weekend...

    Great house, very charming every thing you would need for a weekend stay. Fire, heaters and electric blankets keep you toasty warm. Supermarkets are an easy walk away other wise bars/restaurants and cafes are a little further 2-3 km. would definitely recommend or stay here again. Loved the welcome bottle of wine too!!
