    09 October 2016

    "After sightseeing during the day we enjoyed returning to our cottage to have a sundowner on the verandah,watching the sunset or going for a walk through the orchards, dogs in tow! Our accomodation was superb, and the special touches like fruit from the farm and a fridge stocked with spring water made it all the more special! Excellent value for money!<br/><br/>"
