Great accommodation and charming helpful owners
This property was an ideal location for our purposes- 5 minutes from my sister’s nursing home who we had come from Sydney to visit. Kaye and Chris were very on site to greet us when we arrived and showed us through the apartment.There was a supply of necessaries available for our use -salt and pepper,teabags ,coffee maker and coffeee, eggs and milk available. They were on hand if we needed anything and were very charming hosts. I recommend The Oasthouse cottage to anyone wishing to visit New Norfolk.
