Fantastic, quirky and fun holiday experience
By Jenny Green

Old Dadswell Town is a quirky, interesting and fun place to holiday... a destination in itself. Great for families, groups and couples wanting a holiday with a difference.

Review - Old Dadswell Town
By Kylie Jane Degeling

TakeABreak Awards 2009 Winner of two categories: Group Accommodation AND Unique and Unusual Accommodation.
