  • Great pad for a short getaway

    Great pad for a short getaway. We thoroughly enjoyed the bach as a base to explore the area. We had lovely horse/pony rides during our stay and also enjoyed the forest walk near the property with our toddler.

    Owner/manager responds:

    Hi Leanne, It does say in my listing that the TV is DVD only and that the barn isn't ideal for small children, the dvd's provided do cater for all ages tho and I thought you'd appreciate the free pony ride to keep those toddlers occupied. :-)
