Amazing stay! I recommend this house to everyone

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed here twice now and both times have been excellent.

Plenty of things to do even though it was a bit rainy and the house has everything you could need.

Fantastic retreat

  • 5 of 5

We didn't want to leave. This place had everything we needed. So much to do without leaving the property and in a beautiful location. The pizza oven was an absolute hit. Will book again in better weather to enjoy all it has to offer.

Excellent property

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for letting us stay over the weekend, we had a wonderful time.

The house and property is absolutely stunning and the house was so user friendly, easy to navigate and well stocked with everything that we needed. Pizzas were a hit so the pizza oven is definitely a great addition to the house.

Excellent Long weekend

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed the long weekend. It was a family get-together - so all ages from Grandparents down. Something for everyone to do all day, every day, or do nothing at all ! Lots of 'competitions' and 'Champions' were acknowledged for the different activities. We could all recommend this Farm Play-House to stay for a short or long time.

Best holiday pad! Comfortable & fun!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 10 adults & 3 children thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! The house is well organised and well equipped! - books and comfy couch for those who likes a quiet time, abundant board games for those who likes a bit of fun, toys & outdoor games for the kids! - The men filled their time with playing pool, having a go @ the arcade games & sports activities eg table tennis, badminton & yabbies catching. Ladies made full use of the spacious kitchen cooking up a storm. The house is well laid out and the Wifi is a great feature provided as mobile phone reception is weak. We could still keep in touch with friends via FB etc & emails. I could go on & on. It's definitely an experience worth going for. To the owners, thank you for the lovely place & your prompt correspondence. We will definitely visit again in the future!
