Rated 5 out of 5 by from Picture perfect house! We (family of 7) stayed for 2 nights as a present for our mum to spend quality time together. The house was amazing! My mum loves sandstone and she was in awe of the house. If it were for sale, she'd buy it! Even though its the middle of winter, the house was super warm and cosy, plenty of space for everyone and everything was nice, clean and tidy. Netflix was great for movies at night and the foosball table gave hours of competitive fun. Would love to stay there again! Thank you for an amazing house and letting us stay!
