Thank you Mr Buckner for your letting. It was a much-needed break for our family of 6. We loved the layout of the property and the bathrooms and kitchen were clean, modern and comfortable. We enjoyed the location and having the animals to look at however we didn't manage to book any riding as it was full. Our internet was not working when we arriveRead mored but Mr Buckner solved that promptly, We managed to visit most of the beaches and Osbourne House (twice!) . We hope to revisit soon! Thank you.
