Thank you for the Feedback.. The House has an amazing selection of DVD's for both Children and Adults , along with complimentary Wifi ,Large open area Gardens Adjoined by Green Pastures with Miniature Ponies and wonderful walks along the Private Road leading to Rosswood House.

There are 3 Benches at Rear of House. Apologies over the High Chair this was an oversight. Contact Number & Directions were furnished before arrival 3 Star rating is not a fair reflection of Rosswood House

"Great find!"

I stayed here for 2 nights while attending a wedding in Harvey's point with a group of friends. What a great find. It was so reasonable (especially compared with the price of hotels in the area). The owner Gareth was nothing but helpful despite a late night wake up call for directions really late on the night of arrival.

The house itself is amazing and the setting was gorgeous too. It probably helped that the weather was really nice. A car would be a definite plus if you were staying here. The taxi had no problem dropping us home from Harvey's Point after the wedding but you wouldn't want to be making too much of them trips given the fact that the taxi drivers don't believe in using meters and can tend to be a little pricey. This is not the house's fault though!

The house is so well maintained and all the bedrooms and living area/kitchens/bathrooms are gorgeous. The pictures on the website were true to form.

If I had to make one complaint it would be the fact that we had difficulty finding it when we arrived. That may be down to the fact that it was so late at night, we were all a little tired and emotional!

I would definitely recommend to a friend and I'd like to think we would come back again at some point!
