  • Really enjoyed the house and the setting

    Really enjoyed the house and the setting. Not Richards fault, but the weather did not let us enjoy the wonderful outdoor area. We were a large group and the house coped well with the numbers. Will recommend to anyone.

  • Nice house big enough for us two families staying during bad weather

    Nice house big enough for us two families staying during bad weather. We didn’t use the bbq however the cooking facilities were enough for us to spend good time here while not much outside activities to do. There were legos and board games for kids to play as well. Recommend to upgrade the TV to smart TV so can reflect the movies from iPhone.

    The property was immaculately presented and provided a fabulous venue for a four-generation family Christmas. The instructions for using the facilities were very clear, ensuring easy access and use. Unfortunately unseasonable weather prevented us from making full use of the outdoors, but the large living areas provided ample space for keeping everyone entertained. Great accommodation.
