Had a marvelous weekend overnighter with a bunch of friends at stunning Naringal. The homestead is spectacular and in beautiful condition with all the mod cons and a ginormous kitchen/dining/lounge.
Took a couple of lovely long walks around the historic working property and all in all had a great time.
From the moment you turn into the long tree-lined driveway, you can feel the love that's gone into this beautiful property.
We went as a group of six friends, bags laden with wine and food to cook so we could settle in and forget the outside world.
Sally was there to greet us with a lit open fire and showed us around the sprawling house, including a divine sitting room and massive dining room. We quickly ran around and chose our respective bedrooms (each with the comfiest beds you could wish for), and decided to use the main living room for dining. Oh but wait ... what about the adjacent entertainment room? A modern glass house with fully equipped kitchen and barbecue? So many choices, so little time. We tried to make use of everything this beautiful place has to offer, but would have loved at least one more day/night to enjoy. We managed to get two long walks in, one direction through the green rolling hills, the other to explore the piggery and fantasise about being lords of the land. We truly loved every second of our stay.
Not only is the house and its surrounds (pool and tennis court) fabulous, but the property is a fantastic place to explore, with lots of trails and points of interest such as the old cemetery and the working piggery.
And Sally is a fantastic host. We can't wait to go back.
