    Property was set on lovely farm you could look out to from your bed, lounge or bath. The bath was incredible,so big ( like my partner's 6"4 and I'm 5"10 and we both fit!!!) A very peaceful place to stay with a lot of light and windows to look out into nature. The little touches like the farm style/quirky art pieces really added to the place. Overall if you like escaping to nature, peace and quiet, simple luxuries and good genuine people this is your place! Thanks Paul and Di

  • Great little place for a retreat

    Great little place for a retreat. You don't stay in a converted shipping container if you're wanting 5 star hotel accommodation, but for that quirky relaxing country living, look no further!
