Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing country house We did expect a quiet stay in a nice country house, but the place completely exceeded our expectations! We enjoyed every minute we spent indoors and outdoors. Rustic details and decorations made it feel like it was sweet home, while cosy fireplace helped to survive the night frost. Saw wombats and kangaroos in the snow, and farm animals were super friendly as well.
