This was an excellent property, a joy to visit....some issues about access to the toilet...but you couldn't help but fall in love with this quaint cottage. Centrally located and don't miss Coffin Sally the pizza place on the main drag with a crazy bar up the side.

A charming, spacious, comfortable cottage in a great location- no need to drive anywhere else. We were 2 family couples and although privacy and spaciousness of this cottage was great, my daughter and her partner couldn't put the 2 single beds together in thier bedroom. This cottage is clearly set up for adults and children family scenario. This was only a minor issue as we were passing through a night only. Communication with Sarah was slow at times.

A very easy, clean and comfy place to stay. Baby friendly which was great...especially because we forgot the portacot but one was provided anyway!

We just loved staying at Sarah's place for a week. Highly recommend! Absolutely charming cottage, larger than we expected, very beautiful space, and so warm and cosy. Lovely details everywhere that made us really feel at home (and very comfortable beds too!) And our young kids loved visiting the chooks every morning. Sarah was always quick to respond and helpful with all our questions. Thank you so much Sarah - we'll be back!
