Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

We had an amazing stay at the shearers cottage. The cottage looked out into the paddock and we had sheep and cows coming right up to greet us. They were birds of all sorts just greeting us each day. The kitchen was well stocked with cooking equipment and utensils. We stopped at the grocery to get all our supplies. The space was perfect for our family of 5. We had space to ourselves and each child had they our space too. The owners were very responsive to our questions and even included our kids in on the farm activities, which was so lovely for them. They had dvds and game to borrow. While there was WiFi, it was spotty at best, but part of the reason we chose this location was to unwind. The owners gave us great suggestions on places to visit and eat, which we took full advantage. We would definitely stay here again.

Beautiful surroundings, lying under the stars in the outdoor bath was a huge hit, fishing and seeing all the local attractions. Stunning grounds. One of the best holidays ever.
