Huge house but still a cosy place to stay. Clean and tidy with everything you need. It rained the whole time we were there and for us that was wonderful, we read, watched movies & drank wine in front of the fire. absolute bliss!

Carl’s beautiful place perfectly accommodated my husband and I with our 1-year old and 4-year old, and father-in-law (and there was plenty of space for more). We love visiting Warburton with it’s beautiful mountains and scenery, and this house was a fabulous base being perfectly situated a short walk along the river from cafes and shops. The house was baby- and child-friendly, had plenty of space and rooms, a fantastic kitchen and loads of charm. The best feature is the deck which overlooks the garden, gorgeous trees and the mountains beyond. We plan to come back!
