The location of the property was perfect, surrounded by bush and walks. The property itself didn't have very modern appliances but it kinda felt like being taken back in time and was very homely and cute, and nice to get away with no service or anything!
We had a great family holiday at Blandswood - it is situated in a very beautiful part of the world. Very peaceful with lovely birdsong to listen to. Plenty of walks to do, we had two children under 5 and they managed Big Tree, Denniston Bush and Ackland falls. Great to escape the busyness of daily life - and not much coverage for your phones if you want to escape!
