Built originally in the 1860's, the Guest House has undergone many changes over the decades from the original farmhouse to a Film Production Centre. It has recently been lovingly restored and tastefully renovated to reflect the grace and elegance of this historic Victorian-style house, now conveniently fitted with all the modern conveniences any holiday maker could ever want.
