4 couples stayed recently for the Brighter Days Festival. It was within walking distance to the main town, just a quick scenic walk across either bridge - no problems. It'a back off the street, so no street/road noise or people walking passed your room waking you up. The place looks old style from the outside, but inside has been updated... More

Stayed here in October and had a fantastic time. We stayed in a newly renovated unit which was very comfortable. The bbq area and large lawns offer a great place to get outside and let the kids run around. And so close to town. Park the car and forget about it. Walk to the pubs or restaurants in minutes.

This was our second stay. The first with new owners, Rob and Michelle. The property is set well back from the road and is very quiet except for the lovely birds that fly by. There is a large grassed area. We stayed a week just after the autumn festival. The garage right by the door is a bonus especially in... More

Accommodation built in the 70's or 80's. 2 bedrooms, comfortable beds. Small but adequate kitchen. Great location- quiet but only a very short and pleasant walk to the river and shops. Thoroughly enjoyed.

Having travelled to Bright for years Williwdene remains my favorite accommodation. It has lost none of it's country charm over the years (be sure to utilize the fire pit and BBQ area) and has a great yard for kids. The owners are always happy to help or stop for a chat. If you want a pool and all the modern... More
