  • Feel the relaxed ambience of living in a straw house.

  • Stylishly furnished

The Straw House is ideal for two couples wanting to be close to the centre of town and also within walking distance of the vineyards. Each bedroom has its own en suite bathroom and the open plan living is between the two bedrooms. The house faces north to provide maximum sunshine and has huge bi-fold type doors opening onto a patio. It is perfect for outdoor living with a BBQ provided. There is a gas fire for winter which heats the house really quickly due the insulation of straw walls. There is SKY TV and a DVD player.

The whole house is stylishly furnished and has a full kitchen with oven and dishwasher.

    The property is delightful, clean and well presented with a bedroom at each end of the house, the location is absolutely perfect for walking to the main square. It was lovely to have provisions left for us in the way of bread, milk, eggs and the usual tea & coffee. The downside for us was that the lighting is very dim throughout and there is almost no sound insulation so almost every noise is heard across the house, but don't let that put you off staying, it's quite charming.

    Owner/manager responds:

    Thank you glad you enjoyed your stay. We agree the lighting is on the dim side due to the design of the recessed lighting to suit Strawhouse design. We will consider including putting some additional lighting in the kitchen area.
