a fabulous, secluded spacious home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of 12 and found Northend farmhouse really magical in its position at the end of a long winding drive so near to the ocean and surrounded by fabulous walks with a plethora of lovely beached nearby. Eddie welcomed us and was there to help when we needed it even providing us with a few forgotten items along the way! There was plenty of space for the 12 of us, the decor is simple and homely with some lovely pieces of furniture and little details. We had a fab time and would definitely recommend it for big groups, its a great party house!

Ken and family

  • 5 of 5

We booked property for a big birthday for the whole family to get together. We were lucky with weather and the views from the garden were brilliant. With a wide age range in the party makeup the trampoline in the garden was well used by the younger members as well as the pool table.

Accommodation very good and delivered the space we needed and the location was lovely and peaceful whilst beaches were only a short drive away.

Eddie was the perfect host with the visit to the onsite micro brewery and for my 3 year old gran-daughter being lifted on to Eddie's daughter's horse was a highlight!

Thank you for a wonderful break
