“WE WILL MOST CERTAINLY BE BACK!!!”
Reviewed 23 January 2018 for a stay in January 2018

We would just like to thank Ashley for his awesome welcome and the great cottage that he has.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the cottage has absolutely everything that is needed for a home away from home.
We enjoyed sitting on the veranda and looking out over the dam to appreciate the quietness of the nature and the stunning views in the area.

We would definitely recommend this wonderful farm and cottage to anyone.

WE WILL MOST CERTAINLY BE BACK!!!
