  • The location is perfect

    The location is perfect. Just enough out of the city centre to enjoy rabbits and hedgehogs wandering around the gardens yet close enough for a 5-10 min drive into the shops, even closer to Splash Planet and the Farmers market. The property is gorgeous and a very comfortable home for a family trip.

    We had two young children with us and this house was just what what we needed for a week away from home- great bath and there were even bath toys there! Lovely quiet location but also very close to the Showgrounds and town. Many thanks, we plan to come back when we can.

  • Excellent location, very central to all the wineries and attractions

    Excellent location, very central to all the wineries and attractions. Rurally situated, yet close to centre of Hastings. Very private setting. The property is spacious, the house is comfortably furnished and equipped with everything one could possibly need. Couldn't be better!
