Amazing property, the kitchen was really well equipped and very spacious. We loved feeding the fish each day and our Labrador would spend ages just watching them in the pond. Will definitely return again when Covid restrictions of 6 people are lifted for big family and friends gatherings.

What can I say about this place? Location, amenities, the house itself was stunning. Had the best time here and would highly recommend to everyone. We had our holiday cancelled and found this gem. We hope to return again one day.

Absolutely beautiful property with complete privacy and fantastic amenities such as the hot tub and boat in private pond. A little slice of heaven to get away from the city. A special touch was feeding the fish every day and playing pool in the games room. Absolutely loved our stay at the Oast House as did our dog. We even had a walk up to the GusbRead moreourne winery which was an added benefit being so close. Would definitely return for another stay! Hide

This property was perfect for us. We had children from 5yrs to 17yrs and they all had a great time. The kitchen is extremely well equipped and there is so much to do. The boat on the lake, the games room, the hot tub, we used them all even in January. Lovely walks behind the property as well.

I am a little reluctant to tell you how wonderful this property is as I fear it will get fully booked and we won't be able to make a return visit! It is amazing; beautifully clean, exceptionally well equipped, all the beds are comfortable and it lacked nothing but a razor point to recharge electric toothbrushes! Outside the grounds are beyond expecRead moretation: hot tub, games room, play equipment and a boating lake! Location is truly rural (ie no phone signal) but close enough to surrounding activity.

We had the most wonderful weekend in early October celebrating a golden wedding, a 70th and 3 x 40th birthdays. The oast house was spotless and very well equipped with plenty of room for all of us. We made good use of the games room and there was plenty to do in the surrounding area. Can' wait to go back again.
