    Remote location was very cool, in a part of the country I'd never visited before. The house is a solid older style house, generously sized bedrooms. We were only staying the one night so had no opportunity to look at the river and surrounds, but I would happily stay here again to explore a bit further.

    Cookies top notch, Fresh farm eggs even better. Such a nice quiet place to stay plus the river being such a wicked spot to spend the day at. Best New Years so far!

  • A really nice place to go to getaway from the city

    A really nice place to go to getaway from the city. Really spacious and was well kitted out for cooking etc. We loved using the fireplace and were even provided with homemade biscuits! One thing to note would be that there wasn't any 021 signal, but I found it a welcome break from technology!
