Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Property! We stayed at Somerton pre and post my sons wedding. It is a lovely property and it had plenty of room for all our guests to prepare for the event. It is very well appointed and the house is very well maintained. Cant wait for a return visit!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A beautiful house with lovely view over Bowral A group of 14 of us stayed at Somerton this weekend and have a truly lovely time. The house is huge, with plenty of outdoor space and a beautiful garden overlooking Bowral. The kitchen is well appointed and very much enjoyed sharing a few bottles of red in front of the fire. I'd love to stay in Somerton again and can highly recommend it to any large group wanting to stay close to Bowral, but in a beautiful woodland setting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Weekend at Burncroft House was beautiful and just perfect for 11 women- ie: plenty of bathrooms, large dining table and kitchen to sit and talk.  Owners were lovely and we were even spoilt with a bottle of red and white on arrival !! Apart from greeting on arrival and departure, they left us to ourselves but were available if we needed them.  Would highly recommend Burncroft to any large group and look forward to returning some day.
