We stayed for 8 nights and loved every moment! Brad is a great guy-nice to talk to and readily available when needed (eg getting more fire wood), yet allows for privacy. When we arrived the house was cosy warm and smelling of Fresia flowers! Our two dogs loved sleeping on the veranda, our family (and friends with baby) loved relaxing with a magnificent view of the Hawkesbury river, lying on the lawn or playing badminton, and exploring this great property and surrounds on walks and drives. The house has all comforts&luxuries (incl foldable kid's cot)- yet with so much character, history and such a great location it makes it perfect for a recharging holiday! Definitely planning to come back!
