Can’t wait to come back!
Amazing stay and absolutely worth the drive! We were lucky enough to stay on a very clear night and I’ve never seen that many stars. There is a lot of attention to detail in the house design and complementary items. From a delicious breakfast to apps for star gazing, it was perfect. And the outdoor space was incredible (and so many sheep)! Loved it and would absolutely be back for a longer stay.
