Sleepout available $20 pn extra.

All quality linen supplied, electric blankets, full kitchen with dishwasher, microwave, fridge/freezer, washing machine. Outdoor clotheslines among the trees. Bath with shower over.

Pretty antique china, elegant glassware, furnishings, ornaments and decor have been carefully chosen. Two sofas, extra chairs and dining table. Reading lamps and heaters.

Owners live nearby through the trees, but not too close and are available should you need anything. We respect our guests' privacy and in fact half an acre is yours to use.

We have an eccentric collection of BIKES for all ages and helmets for you to use if you wish.
