Spent the weekend of our daughters wedding here. The cottage was perfect for the bride and girls to stay and get dressed the homestead was perfect for family and the men. We were spoilt by Carol and Jackie. Continental breakfasts were gourmet delight. All homemade. Thanks Carol for the cooking hints. 😃 Will definitely return. Highly recommend for any occasion.
