Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Escape Our stay at Darlington was relaxing from the moment we walked in the door. The house is well appointed with quality furniture which make sure that you genuinely feel at home. We loved our time in Orford and enjoyed a few trips in the car to some local vineyards, but we were always glad to get back to our home away from home. Loved the morning coffee/tea which was a nice facility and everything in the home was easy to use. Janice was lovely during the booking process and went out of her way to ensue that we would be comfortable with our newborn son during our stay. Thanks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous property in a stunning spot We stayed recently for a few days in the school holidays. It was myself and my best friend with our teenage children (5 between us) We had the most relaxing time together and even though it was the middle of winter it was cosy and warm inside and the view was spectacular. Plenty of room to relax, the beds were so comfortable and we will definitely be coming back.
