The pool is warm late November to early April and is located behind the main house. Access to the pool is all yours for the duration of your stay, pool towels are provided. Tennis racquets are balls are provided if you wish to have a game of tennis.

Our Cottage surrounds have been featured in several tv shows as a filming location including Married at First Sight and Cooks on Fire. Please contact us if you wish to film on site as there is a minimum charge of $1,250 per day (8 hours). 

Our check in time is 2:30pm, check out at 10am. If you are requiring a slightly earlier check-in or later checkout - we are more than happy to try to accommodate this if we are able, however, please enquire as it depends if we have bookings on either side of your stay. 

Our family home is next door to the Cottage and we love our animals! We have two friendly dogs Clover and Crackle, our cat Maximus and 11 chickens. If you are not a dog person please do let us know and we will keep them around the back during your stay.

Our family home is next door to the Cottage; however the cottage is very peaceful and private with just the horses next door for company and the sound of birdsong.

Please note that we do not allow events on site.
