It is a place to getaway from it all,very quiet. Horses come around often, a real farm environment. There was no hot water in the sink to wash dishes. Have a pamphlet advising on what can be done on the farm as far as activities and things to do. Roads up to the main house could be improved by removing the large stones.

The road was definitely a challenge,testing our driving skills. But the view,atmosphere and overall relaxing when we got there made up for it. Yvonne,the owner was very helpful and patient with the kids asking questions walking around with her. They loved the horses,looking for crystals and being able to walk all over. We had a lovely time and I will definitely go back again

No cellular connection, no TV, just relaxation from the time you arrive till you leave. Bare basics from the clean and tidy accommodation for that pure farm feeling. Will certainly be back to enjoy the view during the summer.

We booked in March for our stay and on arriving, were told we could not get the cottage with the dog inclosure as they had put other people in there.We were travelling with 3 White Swiss Shepherds. We were put in a room, very nice but small, especially with the dogs. That was really upsetting to us.
