“Very enjoyable”

Reviewed 12 Aug 2014

Carmel and Jason couldn't have been more welcoming and hospitable.The property was very well suited to our party, we had two small children , there was great freedom for them to move around and burn up energy. The property is although rural and peaceful is well located and close to shops etc. We found the people of the locality very friendly and welcoming The weather was extremely warm. The bedrooms could have done with some air con or ventilation at night time.
