We loved our stay at the Scout Hall. The hosts were friendly and helpful. The accomodation was charming, very clean and well appointed with what you need. We especially loved the coonara wood fire!

A lovely, comfy place. At the scout hall you will have everything that you need. The beds and linen were of a high quality and super comfortable. Thank you to the owners.

5 out of 5
Unusual accommodation, beautifully restored hall, stage area provided a good tv/play area, renovated bathroom and kitchen. Extremely spacious home with huge living spaces, clean and comfortable. Cold nights in Harcourt, but central heating very effective. Washing machine and dryer included, and the clothes airer together with the big high windows helped clothes drying.
