The ground floor Music Room is very comfortable and well-equipped. We especially appreciated the access to a laundry and drying facilities.

I loved the uniqueness of the property and apartment. It was very cosy and made me feel very much like I was on a vacation! Additionally, the bed was very comfortable, space to spread out was fantastic, and the kitchen and breakfast was everything we needed!

Greeted by Colin, Miss Til (little terrier) and immediately felt the old world charm. Colin showed us to our very spacious, butt cosy self contained apartment and explained the history - the 'room' had been the homework/study area for female students.... " A place of learning and discipline'. Very light and airy with a quaint little verandah, comfortable kitchen - everything we needed, even bathrobes. A plentiful breakfast, we wanted for nothing....and the bed gave us a great night's sleep. Would recommend this charming piece of local history. Thank you Colin...and Miss Til!

We loved our stay at this place. From the moment of our arrival, Colin made us and our two young children feel very welcome. The kids loved the lemons picked straight from the tree - and the chickens. The room was so interesting and very comfortable. It was clean and warm. The breakfast items set us up perfectly for another day on the road. We would highly recommend this lovely place.

Hi, Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us. It was a pleasure to have met you all. We would also like to thank you for leaving the place so neat and tidy particularly given the work that I know goes into getting a family ready for the trip ahead. Please come and stay again if you are travelling through the area.

Absolutely loved the old world feeling and decor of this fabulous accomodation. Gorgeous comfy king bed , two fireplaces , we used the one that was gas and easy to light ! Also it was great to have breakfast supplied so that we could cook it when we wanted to , to have an early driving start .

A true gem! A very happy find with hosts who have clearly restored life back into this amazing piece of history with an eye for detail and a loving approach. Looking forward to returning again some day and sending family and friends who we know will appreciate this beautiful place as much as we do.
