This house has everything you need for a relaxing stay. The kids loved the pool and the adults loved the well equipped kitchen and outdoor/indoor area. We played games and completed a jigsaw! Highly recommend this wonderful house.

Great family friendly holiday house

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time at Magnolia House for an extended family (early) Christmas weekend. Lots of space, comfy beds, lots of nice extras including breakfast provisions and handmade luxury soaps. Our kids loved the big salt water pool with lots of pool toys. Adults enjoyed the spacious back room with the pool table. We also had a toddler with us and so the portacot and high chair provided were great.

The holiday house with it all!

  • 5 of 5

This house has all the touches of home and it is evident that the owners go the extra mile for their guests. It was well stocked with utensils for cooking which is often not the case in self contained accommodation. The beds were comfy, huge living areas, a lovely pool all in a great location for walking or bike riding but just a few minutes drive to shops. Highly recommended and hope to stay there again in the future.

Fantastic family friendly property

  • 5 of 5

Family celebration weekend was made perfect in this wonderful house. Well equipped with something for everyone. Plenty of shared space plus opportunity to retreat for some quiet time. Hostess Roselle ensured we had everything we might need including helpful information on local facilities. We couldn't fault the property or the location. Would thoroughly recommend.
