Downstairs comprises of a large fully equipped country style kitchen with dining table; lounge; bathroom; shower room and separate toilet.

A wood heater in the kitchen/dining room and open fire in the lounge makes for a cosy stay.

A wisteria frames the north-facing verandah which is ideal for enjoying your favourite meal/wine or reading a book. It also has a gas BBQ and outdoor couch.

The garden contains a small pond with safety mesh with rockery and plenty of shaded and sun-filled spots to enjoy the tranquillity and abundant bird life, blue wrens galore. There is plenty of room with lockable front and rear porch and undercover parking.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Rustic defined! A farmhouse down a lane with two wood fires, eclectic furniture, working sheds, primitive bathrooms. Very rustic. 10am checkout too early to enjoy a big breakfast in front of the kitchen fire.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Old house It was a kind of adventure to stay in an old farmhouse and it was easy to find with owner's clear description. There are lots of old things in the house and around and it was interesting to explore. Nice metal work decorating the kitchen, open fire and sheep around the house. The only thing you don't have from description is that this house has steep stairs and it's really steep. The owner was sending me letter about it before booking, to be fair. In previous review you can read, that -"In the house, spider webs and daddy long legs hang in the corners that are hard to get at but the living space is neat and clean." Now, two month later, spider webs were everywhere and daddy long legs were sitting in every corner in toilet and bathroom, sink and shower cabin were full of dead insects, so we cleaned it before use.The house has nice and tide kitchen, clean linen, good towels, heaters in every bedroom, but it also need some general cleaning.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun in a farmhouse It was fun to stay in an old farmhouse and we found the furniture was comfortable. Unique metal work decorating the kitchen was amazing. The farmhouse was easy to find, past a gourmet pub and down a quiet country road. Kangaroos graze in the fields at sunset. Sheep graze in the fields around the house. In the house, spider webs and daddy long legs hang in the corners that are hard to get at but the living space is neat and clean.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My family had a very comfortable night at Tiptre. It was a lovely old house - the boys enjoyed the house and garden and we relaxed by the fire. Thoughtful touches made us very welcome.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wow, what a lovely place to get away from the city! It really is a country house, just what we were after... we spent a very enjoyable afternoon sitting on the grass listening to the geese and ducks doing their thing, one night was not nearly long enough!! Will definitely come back! Thanks, Kate, Aimee, Alice and Alex
