Magnificent property steeped in history.
This house has to be seen and stayed in to truly understand how magnificent it is in every way. The personal touches added by Karen, who is the perfect host, only further separates this property from all others as unique in itself and idyllic in it's surrounds. I cannot recommend it highly enough.
We loved our stay, the house was immaculate and very well presented with period features.
On arrival the owner had made us a yummy sponge cake, left us fresh bread, fresh eggs and a bottle of wine.
The location and the garden was stunning. We enjoyed relaxing on the verandah and the kids enjoyed running around in the garden and playing in the river.
Beautiful property, perfect location
We had a glorius 3 day stay recently, the weather was hot and spent much of our time in river, cool and refreshing and in the pool, wandered the gardens, plenty of space for our easter egg hunt. Easy walk to town. Karen was very gracious leaving us supplies, would thoroughly recommend staying here.
Gorgeous comfy house with stunning surrounds
We visited Hampden House over summer with my mum and the two kids. It was a really special week and I'm glad we had enough time to really settle in and discover all the interesting and thoughtful touches in the house and surrounds. The BBQ worked fab for grilling, the pool was luxurious and river, a natural spa. The house is really comfortable and there was plenty of room for the six of us. Even my mum went rock hopping to find a nice spot in front of the gentle rapids to get her back massaged. Highly recommended.
Amazing property and generous owner!
Karen maintains this house so beautifully. It’s is quirky, homely and truely a home away from home. The facilities and location are perfect and Karen’s generosity really made our stay perfect - we had fresh eggs, bread, champagne and a beautiful gift upon our arrival. The beds were super comfortable and the atmosphere upon arrival and for the duration of our stay were unfaultable. This house really is perfect and I can not recommend staying here enough. We stayed as we got ready for my wedding here and the house was perfectly suited to this and so much more. Hopefully we will have the opportunity to stay again in the near future! Karen really went above and beyond.
Hampden House is a beautiful home nestled within a lovely serene garden! It was the perfect place for a quiet Christmas getaway. Our host was incredibly thoughtful leaving delicious home baked goodies and decking the halls with lovely Christmas decorations. All of which made us feel incredibly welcome. Thank you!
