  • Loved it! Well-kept, immaculately clean, comfortable, and beautifully equipped family sized home,...

    Loved it! Well-kept, immaculately clean, comfortable, and beautifully equipped family sized home, with delightful garden in a quiet country village. Could not be bettered if you are looking for a peaceful and pleasant place to stay. Not a lot in the village itself, but close enough to other, larger, towns if you need anything the single shop does not sell. We would go back any time we are in the area.

    Thanks John for your enthusiastic feedback. As you say the village is quiet and peaceful, but with Geraldine, Ashburton and Methven, all within 30 mins drive not overly remote, plus the local towns provide lots of options for day trips for guests staying for a few days. You would all be welcome back anytime:)

    Perfect, clean, tidy and well equipped. We enjoyed sitting on the couch outside in the sun and having the fire to light on a cooler evening. Comfortable beds. Thanks.
