The accommodation was beyond our expectations and our hosts were extremely friendly, hospitable and accommodating, answering all our questions and making sure we felt welcome and comfortable. Highly recommend if you would love a country getaway. The gardens, summer house and bridge over the picturesque water all added to the beautiful experience. Reading the history of the house was wonderful as well. Thank you for sharing this piece of paradise and also for the welcome basket.

Thank you for your beautiful home and property. We stayed in preparation for our daughter’s wedding. The bridal party stayed here the first night and what a magnificent location for her prepping and relaxing beginning the celebrations. The beds were incredible. We didn’t want to leave. Loved every bit of our stay.


March 2022

From booking through to check out we had the best experience with Julia, she was helpful, easy to communicate with and kindly left us a welcome hamper for our stay. The property is stunning, we loved sitting out on the verandah for a cup of tea or drink in the afternoon. The house is well equipped including shampoo and conditioner and a hair dryer! We loved our stay and will definitely be back. Highly recommend!

Our wedding weekend was made even more special by having Old Duninald as our home base. My girls got ready here and it rained all morning on the tin roof. The property made for the most fun photo’s with our crew and the perfect spot for our first morning together as husband & wife. Thanks for everything.
