Review on Noosa Sound Horning Posted 2014
We had seen Noosa sound cottage from cruising on the river and decided it looked a delightful place to stay,
We looked it up on the internet and very much liked what we saw and booked it for a week's holiday.
Well our breath was quite taken away when we actually arrived and saw how beautiful it actually was from the moment we crossed the private bridge that led to the cottage, we passed the family of swans resting on their nest at the edge of the inner mooring.
Noosa Sound cottage lived up to and surpassed my dreams, it was absolutely immaculate, cosy and comfortable, every room was filled with everything you would ever need and more.
My words to my husband were “I think I've died and gone to heaven”
The views from the large patio windows took in the beauty of the gardens leading down to the river, where many happy hours were spent catching fish by my husband.
We spent a very relaxing time enjoying the lovely garden which was so well maintained, we enjoyed many happy lunches & drinks reading, relaxing and soaking up the lovely tranquility.
We watched with interest the family of swans going about the daily activities with the signets growing bigger each day.
We enjoyed walking into the village and getting our daily fresh rolls cold meats and provisions from the array of wonderful local shops, stopping on our way for a drink or two at the village pub (New Inn) before heading back to our cottage.
I don't think you could ask for more, the setting, the comfort, the sheer beauty of the cottage and its large gardens, the relaxing atmosphere, wildlife and of course the fishing.
Thanks Val and Ian for allowing us to enjoy your wonderful cottage, we will be coming back as often as we can.
