Reviews

“Had a wonderful 2 nights - peaceful and tranquil. The fireplace and the lagoon view something special. Would gladly go back..” - Adrian S of travelground on Lagoon View

“A lot of love has gone into this house. It was a wonderful place to stay - we wanted for nothing. Lovely big tranquil garden, and close to the shops, which we found full of friendly, helpful people. We all fell in love with this little town, and definitely, want to go back again. I'd love to stay at The Blue House again - it just has a special magic that you don't find easily in a home away from home.” - Anne Spies of safarinow on The Blue House

“We were a small group of friends looking for time to re-connect and what a wonderful place to do it. The Little farmhouse is comfortable and beautifully decorated. Fresh eggs and biscuits laid out, brushed cotton sheets, all wonderful. The serenity and birdsongs make for a wonderful background, with sheep and donkeys coming to visit. We will keep going back. Thank you, Natalie.” - Cindy Postlethwayt of safarinow on The Little Farmhouse
