Warm and welcoming in a beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful relaxing weekend at Hampden House. The house is a real delight to stay in as it has such a warm cosy feel and furnished so beautifully with so many interesting things. The setting is also beautiful and yet only a short walk into the town. All the little extras that Karen provides make your stay feel even more special.

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful time we had at Hampden House and what a beautiful welcoming old lady she is. All the little touches just had to the joy when you first arrive - fresh flowers in every room, music playing, milk and bubbly in the fridge and chocolate and sherry. And then a wander though the gorgeous garden and down to the river. Bliss. The house is perfect for 4 couples as each bedroom is large and each bed so very comfortable. Thank you Karen for sharing this beautiful home.

Fantastic holiday home

  • 5 of 5

We had our annual girls weekend away at Hampden House. There were 8 of us and we all absolutely loved this house. There was so much space and all of the rooms were beautiful. Karen, our host, made us feel at home with gorgeous treats (bubbly, sponge cake, fresh eggs and bread) and we were fascinated learning about the history of the house. I would absolutely recommend this accommodation for anyone looking for a quiet time away from the city.

A Beautiful Woman

  • 5 of 5

Hampden is a beautiful woman inside and out she has style, personality and loads of character. Her gardens are tranquil and the river that runs at the bottom of the property is the best therapy you can have. Thank you Karen for sharing this beautiful old lady who wears her years well and treats her guests like old friends. We wanted to spend all of our time with her by the kitchen fire and on her verandah taking in the tranquility. The city stress we took with us was gone in the first hour of arrival. We will be back to see her again. Kerry & Leo

A wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

Our small family of three visited KV recently and stayed at Hampden House. It was truly a magical experience. From the beautiful grounds to the enchanting house itself, we didn't have to plan much to enjoy our stay. Karen, the lovely host, thought of everything. We were greeted with the most yummilicious cake, chocolates, local eggs and bread and even a bottle of bubbles.

My 3-year-old son discovered a box of toys and kept him busy for a long time - an added touch you don't get in most places.

The property is well kept, with everything you could possibly need and the beds are insanely comfortable.

There is a beautiful fire in the kitchen which makes you just want to stay and cook meals while overlooking the green backyard.

I highly recommend this place, especially if you are after some R&R and love waking up to birds and a hot cup of coffee while staring off into the misty morning.

Cosy and welcoming in great location

  • 4 of 5

We had a relaxing and very comfortable weekend here. Karen made us feel so welcome by leaving us an amazing supply of essentials and yummy good quality treats. The house was well stocked with quality towels and bathroom necessities. We appreciated a brief visit from Karen to make sure we knew how to operate the heating. Lots of DVDs to choose from and a Bose music system gave us lots of entertainment. The beds were beautifully made with best quality linen and the electric blankets were a nice touch. Hanpden House is a short walk from the village which is very convenient. We loved the garden and direct river frontage. Second toilet and shower in the laundry was convenient during the daytime. It was a delightful stay for our girls weekend. Thanks Karen.
