"We have been coming to stay at Nanas house since 2005. It is a warm and welcoming place to stay.
it is a great place to sit and have a glass of wine infront of a lovely fire after a full day of activity. We absolutely recommend it to everyone and we hope to keep coming for many more years."

"I travel the region every three weeks with my employment and in terms of value and comfort you can't go past the B n B cottages of Black Jack Get-A-Ways.

I am normally on the road four days at a time so to have all the comfort features of home and a continental breakfast plus then have a wonderful two course dinner. Black Jack Get-A-Way is a great place to stop for business or pleasure and any duration of time.

As well as the accommodation, I can also highly recommend Blacksmith's Chatter as a wonderful conference venue.  Susan was fantastic in assisting with offering suggestions for layout of the main function area. Blacksmith's Chatter offers a number of rooms if you choose to have multiple sessions running at once.  The catering for the function was fantastic."
