Guest Reviews:

“We really enjoyed the property. It was clean, neat and presented very well with nice touches such as the heating being turned on before we arrived and the welcome pack of wine and snacks. This was much appreciated. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen was well equipped. The ensuite in the second bedroom was also nice to have. We are happy to recommend The Kookaburra and would stay here again.”

We loved it!!!!

Very cosie spacious property. Perfect for 2 couples. Massive leaving room and dining table. Little touches such as a bottle of wine and lovely snacks were unexpected but so nice. Extremely well heated property which is so important in that area in winter.
