Historical farm house with a character and recently reconditioned original wooden floors. The name of the house is 'The Shearers Quarters' and it's one of the oldest houses in the area. It's a place to relax and enjoy the outdoors all around. The beach is only 10 minutes drive away and offers good surfing, fishing etc.

I must admit I would not come back here. Of course it's not a pricey batch, but it was a little more 'rustic' than I expected. The building is quite run down, a few windows did not close letting plenty of flies into the place. There was a bee hive in the side building, lots of them died in the kitchen. This is advertised for up to 10 ppl, yet the 'dining' area has 3 low stools to sit on. 1 1/2 toilet rolls provided for a 2night stay. On the + side, lounge is very comfy and it was fairly clean.
I believe the place is posted physically at 3186 rather than 3196. It's old and rustic, simple but not lacking. Beautiful lounge and lovely fireplace, great location and surroundings. We were very happy and would love to go back.
