Previous reviewers have said it all so please excuse the repetition.
The property is perfect and fans of "Farrow & Ball" will love it. David & Brad were the perfect hosts - low key but nothing was too much trouble. Breakfasts were perfect.
This is a beautiful 1902 house ... I loved the wood floor and sympathetic and creative decor.
Our room was lovely with a balcony overlooking the estuary.
Comfortable bed and soft towels.
There is a communal area with sofas and music if you want it....More

Hi Lindley and Don, just spotted your booking for next summer - welcome back to Russell. Off the top of my head I know the time line back 3 owners ago which is only to the 80s but if you let me know your grandparents' name I can find out more. Going back from us the owners names were Carlsson, before them Heays & Bosanquet, before them Shatwell (his name but not sure if his wife had the same name) but they ran it as a very successful back packers. Lots of people in town would be able to give me the info if I can give the name. Otherwise I need to dig out the title deeds. Cheers, David
