We had the most wonderful holiday staying in this immaculate homestead. We have 4 girls and they just loved the house and the beautiful surroundings. Lots of wildlife to see and just extremely peaceful. It was like our own little oasis to come back to each day after our sightseeing. The whole district was beautiful with lots of fun things to do and interesting sights. I would thoroughly recommend this property. Our girls wanted us to buy it so we could go there whenever we liked!!5/5 by ,
A divine house with everything you could ask for.Comfort,space,tranquility.It was well stocked in the kitchen,great movies and games for the kids and plenty of reading material.The views of the river were wonderful and the massive wrap around deck got quite the workout from the 5yr old.We loved the morning visits from the resident cows too.
