The property was a one of a kind experience. Plenty of wildlife, amazing sunrise, complimentary breakfast hamper with local goodies. The care taker Michael was also wonderful, very accomodating and passionate about the property. He even gave a tour of the ground. Very unique experience. This property is in a very serene location with alot of history. Will definitely visit again. Thank you for a lovely stay.

The location was beautiful. The room was clean with comfy beds and the breakfast hamper filled with local produce was the best! Very limited phone reception in the area and the wifi was practically non existent which made it difficult to communicate with our large group.

it was a very friendly experience, and brilliant for guests at the wedding on-site. A special extra was hearing the history of the property and taking the tour of house and out buildings next morning. We would like to have known that bedroom and bathroom were on different floors; it would have made a difference to our decision to stay there. we would also like a little more hanging positions in the bedroom.
