5/5 Excellent

Wonderful property
Perfect for a large group. So much space inside and out. Relaxing environment and the farm manager was an absolute legend. We will definitely rent this again!

5/5 Excellent

We had a wonderful stay will definitely be back.
We had a great experience at the property, the house was clean tidy and had everything we needed. Would definitely stay again.

1/5 Terrible

Will never go here again
For the price you pay this property is extremely poor. Wi-Fi didn't work. TV was 20 years old and the HDMI cables didn't work. TV remote control didn't work. The pool table cue sticks were all broken. They didn't supply wood for the wood fire. The toilets had no locks. The neighbours were terrible - complaining from the get go about noise at 4pm!?! The pool was filthy. The house is old and in an extremely poor state and the photos are deceiving. I do this every year with my family and this is by far the worst place we've stayed at. Don't go to this place as you'll find better value for money elsewhere.

4/5 Good

Beautiful property
Very stunning property, lots of room and beds. Had all that was needed around the house. Just small bumps during the stay, such as the fridge temperature super low in the kitchen - lots of dead insects in the back guest bathroom/laundry - loads of spiders downstairs practically in every room. Just had to be extra mindful of spiders with baby and toddlers around.

5/5 Excellent

Very enjoyable
We had 10 adults and 10 children at varying ages and the house was great to handle all of our needs with comfort to each family
