  • Generous, very clean and tidy

    Generous, very clean and tidy. A great place to stay as it was comfortable and peaceful. Was more like a little house. They gave us some of their free range eggs which were delicious. Would recommend it to all.

    What a find! This beautiful property was exquisitely furnished with love and care. There was so much attention to detail and it was super clean and tidy. The kitchen was very well equipped and the little touches of fresh free-range eggs and milk in the fridge was so thoughtful. Beautiful well-tended rural surroundings on the edge of suburbia and 5 mins from train station into the city. A wonderful peaceful retreat.

    Great property - beautifully decorated, comfortable and clean. Location was perfect for what we wanted - close enough to town to be handy to everything, but tucked away down a quiet road so very private and peaceful.
