"Welcome to the real world. This is a wonderful place. So many birds- you usually only see them in books. Some great fishing- honest. You just need luck. Ruby (my wife) caught nothing, Gerald (my son ) caught three. I caught 1 and lots of bites.
Last night tonight and a little blue tail wren flittered around our feet on the balcony as we watched the lakes just in case the trout started rising again. All quiet, so I have a glass of nice red. Brilliant place, we will definitely come again and I will be recommending it to a couple of my stressed out mates who need a good break."

"Beautiful and relaxing place. Cottages are great. We had a wonderful 3 days away from work and uni. I love the place! Thank you for the fresh bread. We have enjoyed the quiet nights with glasses of red wine.
This place is absolutely amazing! Even for a young fella as i am. It was well worth the drive for a truly amazing getaway. Dad caught the fish, not me, but I didn’t stop trying. Yet still no luck. Will definitely be here again in the future! Thank you for the warm welcome. Felt like home.
Floyd = greatness."
"Words cannot describe the magic of your property. For the first time in a long time I was able to completely relax and soak up the atmosphere of this beautiful property. The cottage is divine and the view is divine. I fell in love with the donkeys and to have the little wrens share breakfast with us was sheer wonderment.
Thank you so much for providing such a perfect retreat away from the madness of our working life. there is no doubt we will be back. This place restores your sanity and energy like no other place I have been to."
