This property was exactly as advertised. The location is great, the internal and external facilities well above expectations. The Edwards family are good hosts, helpful and dealt with minor issues effectively. The fact that this is a working farm just adds to the local colour. We were very fascinated by sheep picking . We hope to return in the futuRead morere. Hide
