26 January 2019;     This place is amazing and is set on a beautiful property . The room was immaculate and the breakfast was delicious ! We had an awesome stay and will definitely be coming back if we are ever in the region again. If you’re up for a relaxing rural get away but still want to be relatively close to town this place works very well.”
