    Mothers and daughters weekend away
    Our getaway at Vanessa's was wonderful despite the horrible weather conditions. We managed to entertain ourselves by playing games, cooking in the state of the art kitchen equipped with just about everything one can imagine having in it. The rooms were clean, comfortable and beautifully decorated, the spa perfect for the afternoon dips even in the cold weather, we couldn't ask for anything more. Vanessa is a fantastic host who made us feel welcome and made sure throughout our stay we were taken care of.
    Stayed 2 nights in Nov 2021

    We enjoyed an awesome weekend with family & friends. Plenty of room for 3 families. Great location
    First people in since the property being updated & covid restrictions. We had an amazing time with family and friends. Everything we needed was there. Very clean, comfy beds & Vanessa was an awesome host nothing was a problem & easy to communicate. I highly recommend this property if your looking to get away from the hustle and bustle

    4/5 Good

    Great adult family getaway destination
    Vanessa was very accommodating and helpful. In particular I appreciated her allowing extra people to visit for a birthday celebration The house is roomy and well equipped. There were a couple of minor issues eg no ping pong table due to it being broken by previous guests and new one on order, but all were explained or dealt with by Vanessa. A lovely location and comfortable home fir a large group

    4/5 Good
