We recently stayed at Pender Lea Chalet's Pender's Barn from end of July to early August 2013. From the moment we opened the door we were in heaven. The atmosphere of the barn is amazing, it is well equipped [loved cooking in the kitchen], enjoyed evenings by the fire [which was well stocked with wood] and with the convenient location we were left to want for nothing at all. The bathrooms are stunning, the house is well heated [the underfloor heating is delicious], there are beautiful windows showing off the gorgeous countryside, wildlife is abundant and for kids the layout of the house is exciting and fun. Before leaving we tried to devise a plan to buy the house so as not to leave! I am sure Pender Lea Chalet's would never sell it, as it's one of a kind, however, if they do they know who to call :)] We will be back annually and already planning our next visit to the Snowy Mountains - a special time indeed. Many thanks Pender Lea Chalet's - see you soon!
