The cottage comfortably houses 6 adults. It can also fit an additional 2 guests; one on a mattress on the floor upstairs with the queen bed, and one on a trundle bed in the bedroom downstairs with the 2 single beds. The single beds room is a little squishy with the trundle bed out but it can be slid back under the bed during the day. This is perfect for children but not ideal for an adult.
My childhood was spent on a dairy farm in country Victoria. I moved to Melbourne to attend University, where I studied Physiotherapy. I currently work as a Paediatric Physiotherapist.
I love travelling and in particular experiencing different cultures, foods, and expression of interior design. My husband and I have lived in London for 5 years and have travelled extensively throughout Europe, Africa, South America and Asia. We have 3 young children and completely understand the complexities of travelling as a family.
