Words truly can’t describe Big Beautiful Backyard but if you’re after a laid back escape where you can hole up and do exactly as you please – think Henry Miller - then follow this through.

There’s nothing like a coastal holiday; a ‘home-away-from-home’, but what if your family (like many) has a four-legged friend in their pack? Do you leave them behind? If you do take them on holiday, the inevitable questions arise. Are the facilities secure? Are the accommodations up to our standard? If you can’t take them then the inevitable feelings of guilt & separation anxiety arise.
It’s the minimalist yet luxurious Scandinavian style that makes Nord House feel so right. Every single detail is carefully thought through - the textures, the light, the scents – all creating a harmony that inspires the mind and relaxes the soul. Once you arrive at the property which is just off the main strip of Red Hill, you can easily leave the car alone and walk to nearby restaurants and cafes (The Red Hill Cellar & Pantry, The Long table, The Epicurean and Red Hill House are all a comfortable walk away).
What we love about Lindenderry this time of year is its symmetrical gravel walkways with carefully planted short hedges that lead to the many, park-like open lawn spaces that form what we call ‘natural outdoor rooms’. It’s these open spaces that offer respite from the heat, from the hub-bub of city life and provide the opportunity to frolic, play games, or enjoy a picnic. When you finish playing you can cool down around the beautiful pool. Lindenderry has it all; above and beyond everything else it offers a luxurious space, where you can just be, without a worry in the world to care about cause it’s being done for you in a traditional way with service at it’s core. Fuelling this direction is a team with an incredibly impressive food & beverage background and their winery which, recently received another 5 stars from James Halliday.
