What a beautiful and stunning old farm house and so big…. large and lovely xxx Home away from home and our dogs loved every bit of the large beautiful gardens, walks to the dam and nooks and crannies to sniff and investigate. The house was literally furnished with everything we needed…just bring your clothes and food and you’re set!!! The beautiful birdlife, sounds of jackal at night and the livestock gave that amazing farm feeling we were looking for. Long lazy days in the sun reading a book on the biggest veranda I’ve ever seen….this place is now our holiday spot to go!!!! Thank you Robyn for your kindness and hospitality and we will definitely be back ….over and over again!!!” said Barbara Courtney.
