A great house in a lovely setting with very friendly and helpful hosts and a nice dog! Our room was spotless and fresh with a comfortable bed and smashing bathroom. The breakfasts were terrific with home-made sausages a highlight, although the coffee wasn't half bad either. All in all a very fine and rather unusual b and b. Thank you... More

I had the best nights sleep in the comfiest of beds and my son slept in until nearly 8am! Breakfast was delicious (with eggs laid that morning) and enhanced by a... More

A very relaxing and welcoming place to stay - spacious room (en suite) and comfy bed. Very quiet. Lovely breakfast and charming hosts. Garden a delight as is the lake. Cannot add much to the other reviews. Great stay.

Stayed here with my sister for a short break. Vicki was very welcoming and we enjoyed our breakfast chats over a coffee! Room was very comfortable and bathroom we'll equipped. Garden and lake were absolutely glorious all helped by the beautiful sunshine. Great place to explore local NT houses as well.

We had a lovely relaxed stay at Thimble. Vicky was very welcoming and made us feel at home straightaway. Our room was delightful with views to the garden. Hard to add to the other fantastic reviews, they are absolutely right!

This is an exceptional find. 'Thimbles' exudes warmth, charm and delight at every corner. Vicki is a bright and engaging host at all times and her family absolutely delightful too. The room was clean and charming - and the freshly cooked breakfast was delicious and generous in size. I am a hardened city dweller ( My parent's obsession with their... More

Wonderful B&B with two rooms for B&B guests. I stayed in the single room and shared the bathroom with the family. Vicky is not only the heart of Thimbles, mother, entertainer and an incredible cook, she is also a wonderful host. She and her husband welcomed me with a cup of tea and showed me around their cozy home and... More

They recommended we eat... More
