thank you once again for having us as guests in your lovely Platypus Spring Cottage. We enjoyed it very much and we will keep it well in our memories as a cosy place in the middle of a wonderful countryside.
Great location and a beautiful house with all you could wish for to have a relaxing stay. Gorgeous bathroom and a very comfortable bed. A little study nook is great when you want to do some work, the wi-fi works well. Sitting down by the Spring waiting for the platypus to make an appearance is very special. Platypus Spring Cottage has a great setup overall for some time out.
