Review on Noosa Sound Horning Posted March 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.

What a great place to get away from it all. Lovely grounds, comfortable accommodations, water everywhere; not to mention the swan on her nest. All this just a short walk from groceries, restaurants and pubs. Don't miss a ride with Chris on the "Southern Comfort" for a view of the broads from the water..As advertised in every way.

"Amazing quiet location"
The house is very clean and very well equipped. The fishing is brilliant from the private mooring. Bird life is abundance, Kingfisher, ducks and Egyptian Geese are all around you while you are fishing. Heron lands close by to watch you fishing.
The only downside about this property is that the decking is not looked after very well and when wet is very very slippery. The decking needs cleaning to get the slim off.
We had a great holiday and despite the decking we would like to go back soon.
Thank –you very much for your review, it is greatly appreciated. Please do be reassured that the remaining paths have now been power washed and the wire netting completed ; I apologise for any inconvenience this caused you. Your visit was unfortunately at the end of one of the wettest summers on record, the wood had absorbed a lot of water and did not dry out. We had to schedule to complete the work at the end of the back to back bookings, and made sure notices were erected to advise our guests that the unwired pathways were likely to be slippery when wet. Delighted you have booked again for next year.

"Excellent, relaxing place to stay"
This is a perfect relaxing retreat, spotlessly clean and everything you would need for a self catering break. There is plenty of birdlife, kingfishers, heron,various birds feeding on the feeders, boats up and down the river and while we were there a pair of swans sitting on 6 eggs outside the front door on a private lagoon. According to the guest book a number of people go there for the fishing but as I am no fisherman this did not interest me. There are any number of places within easy driving distance to visit including Norwich (the Park and Ride is the best way of going into the city) and a good day out is a visit to Thrigby Hall Wildlife Gardens.
