Great space just outside Thomastown. Needs a car, but easy to visit surrounding towns. Beautiful surroundings and an amazing space to relax upstairs. John was very easy to communicate with, and very relaxed about checking in and out.

Our stay at Stroan was great! John was a perfect host. He met me on arrival and clearly explained all the house details. John’s house is cosy, warm and so comfortable. We were very pleasantly surprised.
