  • This is a great location for a holiday

    This is a great location for a holiday. If you are into walking, fly fishing or some gold panning, being on the farm is brilliant. Great friendly hosts who make you feel you are part of the larger family. Will return for a summer stay.

  • The house is warm, comfortable and well equipped

    The house is warm, comfortable and well equipped. The location is perfect - not too far from civilisation(Gore) but remote enough to feel away from the world in a spectacular setting.
