  • An amazing house and spectacular view

    An amazing house and spectacular view. Everything you could need on hand and lovely garden. Definitely need a 4wd to drive up, particularly in the wet, but the walk up was good exercise for our holiday! Handy walk to the pub, cafe and store also.

  • Beautiful property in a stunning setting

    Beautiful property in a stunning setting. Lovely quiet property but just close enough for easy stroll into Tryphena. Walking up the drive was a workout but worth it for the view

    Thank you for that Well done on the walk - hate to say it but I seldom do that Planning on getting a few more gardens and seats along the way to make it a bit more enjoyable
