"We had a fabulous time at Braeside. We were a very large group of friends with our children. The high rope activity was great fun and excellently run by Cam and Josh. The Big house was superbly clean and well equipped. The kitchen was amazing and we loved the dishwasher!! Despite rainy weather we ventured out to see the locks. Natasha was a great help with all the booking and questions we had, thank you. We really hope to visit again. :-) "
