              Woodcliffe was just perfect. We loved our stay there and thought it was a real gem. The house was clean, comfy beds and the view amazing. Thank you!

              We loved the few days we spent at Woodcliffe Cottage. The scenery is breathtaking, the cycling amazing, the fishing fantastic. Definitively one of our best finds to date.

              Amazing scenery - the cottage is set away from the main farmstead and has beautiful views of the mountains. The cottage is not plush, but has all the necessities. A definite destination for nature lovers.

              A most relaxing stayover in a very beautiful, serene scenery. The cottage has all the comforts one expects from an AA rated venue. The welcome by Phil was very friendly, one feels you are welcomed into a family.
