Our large home which is approached by an impressive tree-lined drive, is surrounded by extensive grounds with mature trees, colouful garden beds and a grass tennis court. The lawns slope gently down to a pond and stream which separate the grounds from paddocks where we graze our friendly farm animals.Inside we have a games room with full-sized billiard table, fridge and TV for guest use and large lounge with feature fireplace. The dining area opens onto a covered verandah where guests may eat in summer.


Upstaris there are three spacious guest rooms, two with ensuite bathroom and balcony. The rooms, which overlook the picturesque grounds all have individual character, comfortable beds (two queen-sized and one twin/king)with electric blankets, luggage racks and tea and coffee making facilities. The bathroom of one of the queen bed rooms adjoins a smaller twin bedroom, so that the three rooms in their own separate wing can be used for a family or group travelling together.The three bathrooms are well appointed with heaters, heated towel rails, toilets and showers over baths.In addition there is a guest toilet downstairs.
