Môreson Cottage has 3 bedrooms and one double with en-suite bathroom. The other 2 bedrooms (one double and one with 2 single beds) share a family bathroom. In addition to this, you can enjoy the farm kitchen, a spacious living room and an old-fashioned sun-room.

Guests are free to walk on the farm, go hiking in the hills, cycle the farms roads and go bass fishing in the dams. There is a whole network of farm roads to enjoy. For the more adventurous, ask about the spectacular 20km road up to the mountain dam.
