  • "Really nice farmhouse, I would highly recommend this venue."

    the grounds are really nice and well maintained, beautiful scenery and very remote. The woodfired hot tub next to lake is a nice touch, also the barn with Pool table, Table tennis table, Dart board and Boules make it a fun place to be. Please be aware that the stairs are very steep and windy, we had elderly parents with us and they couldn't make it up and down them, so had to sleep in the front room on a put me up.
