My wife and I recently had a two day break at R on the Downs and can truly say that their website does not do it justice. The quality of accommodation in particular exceeded our expectations. The setting is magical with a good selection of birdlife as well as wallabies. We stayed in Serenity which was spacious and comfortable with... More

Had a wonderful weekend here with the family. Owners Liz and Doug are fabulous, so friendly and welcoming and caring. Breakfast was delicious and the property is stunning with amazing views. Loved the rooms, so clean, comfortable and luxurious. Hubby and I really loved the special touches like the baked biscuits at the tea and coffee kitchen, the flowers and... More

This peaceful rural B&B set amid beautiful scenery is the perfect getaway. Good home cooked meals, a glass of sherry before dinner, a glass of port after! Take your own wines and beers to drink with meals or as you relax in the lounge - in our case in front of the wood burning fire in winter!

We just spend one night at R on the downs over the weekend and it just wasn't enough! Absolutely amazing people, Doug & Liz who run the B & B couldn't be more welcoming. The location was beautiful, views are stunning, price is very affordable and the cottage was to die for! There was so much thought put into every... More

We just got back from 2 very enjoyable and relaxing nights at R on the Downs staying in the Treehouse. Our friends were in the Settlers Cottage and the Egyptian and Barn rooms in the main house. I completely agree with the previous reviews that everything is very comfortable and the views are all fantastic, though the Treehouse does have... More

Hi, many thanks for sharing with us. Worth noting is that beds are Queen or King size. We love to extend check out times when there are no following bookings. We look forward to your next stay and hopefully an extra long check out time. We are sure that the new subtle changes will be appreciated. More

Great accommodation. We stayed in Treehouse as part of celebrations with 5 other couples for our annual Xmas in July get together . Perfect venue with gracious, welcoming hosts. Only negative was that food was cold - tasty & well presented, "but I like it hot". Will definitely return though.

Wow, this B & B impresses from the minute you arrive. You get out of your car and hear nothing but silence. Peace and quiet in a beautiful countryside. We stayed in the barn room but all the other rooms were equally impressive. Large spa set next to the large private windows so you can look out over the countryside.... More
