  • It's a fantastic location & the views are incredible

    It's a fantastic location & the views are incredible. It's a little tricky to find initially but it's not a huge problem. The house itself shows the strain of being both a backpacker's as well as a holiday-home and needs some TLC, and it badly needs another toilet upstairs, or at least the bathroom and toilet separating. However, the (6) kids loved it. "best holiday ever!" and it's a fabulous location for large, or multi, family holidays. And, house aside, we had a lot of fun.

  • Xmas 2016 on top of the world

    Xmas 2016 on top of the world......6 adults + 2 dogs had a great 4 nights over xmas on the farm. Beautiful spot, very relaxing. We had "rugger" the farm dog join us - fitted in with our lot easy, very smutchy loveable dog, would of kept him if he didn't live in such a great spot - oh and belong to a good guy. Its an awesome private hilltop retreat but its only a couple mins drive to cafe / supermarket / pub / pharmacy. Perfect - will 100% come again.
