Great houseAllan - 15th March 2020
What a great place to stay the perfect peaceful Holliday, there was only one problem that will need to be addressed, I fell through a badly rotted patch of the deck out the back near the pool. Would have bad if it was a child.
Wonderful StayMoniqueS - 4th March 2020

Excellent stay with our friends. Perfect for relaxing for the weekend.
Great family holiday houseKathy - 21st January 2020
Great farmhouse for a large family holiday. It was unusual to have so many belongings of the owners cluttering the house which made it feel a little grubby and it would have been nice to have better quality crockery and glassware. Nothing tastes so good off plastic. Everything else was great though. Loved the trampoline, pool and horses.

What a great house for large groups. with 2 living areas and lots of balcony space it was perfect!

Beautiful houseFamilytime - 2nd December 2016
We booked this house for a family get together and it was ideal. We do this fairly regularly and this was one of the best houses we have booked. We were pleasantly surprised by how well stocked the house was, every kitchen tool/appliance you need is supplied and the pantry had more than basic supplies. The rooms were all clean and comfortable and the pool was a bonus as well. We would definitely recommend this property.

Great Family Holiday House.Dhaval - 5th October 2016
Great Family Holiday House. It's a beautiful location. Lots and Lots of space for kids to play. Surrounded by natural beauty and open fields. House was really clean when we arrived and it was full of all the features mentioned in the ad. Fireplace was awesome (and warm). We loved it, kids loved it. Will visit again.
We had a lovely weekend!Tamsin - 19th July 2016
We had a lovely weekend to celebrate grandma's 70th. 9 adults and 6 kids aged from 2 to 70. A great property for this kind of occasion. It was very cosy and warm and we felt as though we were in a real family home. It has a real lived in feeling (for some this may not appeal as it is not immaculate) but for us it was perfect, with a sense of style. I would also recommend Paul from South Coast catering who came in and did a wonderful job of a celebratory meal. Thanks to the family who owns the property who shared their much loved family retreat!
can't wait to get back there!!Natasha - 15th June 2016
I am torn here, because I want to write that Ellengowan was the worst so no one ever goes there and I can continually book this house whenever I want it but I just cannot do it!! There was nothing not thought of upon our arrival, we had four families and never ran out of toilet paper!! The rooms were beautiful, spacious and with kids aged from 7- bubba size there was more than enough inside the house to keep them entertained when it cooled down and never a feeling of being crowded. Your house encourages you to explore outside, highlighting all that is awaiting at every opportunity through those delicious views and the warmth of the feeling inside the house makes you want to bunker down as it cools down with your wine and your mates.... as you can possibly tell I am still in post holiday glow and can't wait to get back there!!
Lovely and spacious houseDanaye - 31st May 2016
