Awesome Place To Stay

  • 5 of 5

There were 10 of us in the group that stayed here 4 adults, 3 teenagers and 3 younger kids, this place is perfectly suited to anyone that would want to stay there, the configuration of sleeping is great lots of choices and plenty of toilets which is good when you have a large group too. There is nothing I could fault would highly recommend it to everyone, we will be back.

Excellent House and Kind Host!!

It is a very big house and it is beautiful ! All of us love it very much.

It is tidy, fully equipped with all the necessity. How we wish we have booked it for more nights.

Rob is a very kind host.He waited for us at the road side, explaining in detail about the house.

We definitely will recommend it to our friends.

Absolutely the best

  • 5 of 5

This property is great for big groups. Excellent bedding arrangements and plenty of 'spaces' for the kids and grown ups to hang out in without disturbing each other. Host are awesome. Kitchen cupboard with all the basics, flour, oil, tea, coffee, spices, bowl of fruit and milk on arrival. I cannot recommend this property highly enough. Especially for families.
