Not quite what we expected
We were not given details of how to find the property until 3.30pm of the day we were to arrive. We only got this information after we contacted Rachel who told us that she had been busy. Not a great start. The property is in a great location. Unfortunately we found dust hanging from the ceiling in places. The shower appeared clean but once one was standing inside, it was apparent that there was mound on the bottom edge of the glass. This, to my mind, should not ever occur. On the plus side, the bed was comfortable with crisp linen and the coffee machine was good.
A great place to relax
Great property. Lots of quirky decorations. Very cosy and warm in winter.
Lovely to spend a couple of days in such scenic surroundings, loved the trees, mountains, the wrens in the garden and the roses! Thank you for the unique decor here and the little extras so thoughtfully added to this little retreat
Thankyou for a wonderful quiet piece of pardise! Lovely to be child-free to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Loved watching the horses and sitting in the sun on the deck! Bill and Dana
