Jane Hobson
We had a wonderful stay at Thowra House celebrating my mum’s 80th birthday. Not only did our stay live up to all expectations, but beyond as well. The house was clean and extremely well equipped and even with the feel of modernity it was very homely and comfortable and every member of the family felt at ease and relaxed.
