We welcome guests to stay with us on our working farm. Breakfast is served in the inviting kitchen amid the sounds of a new farm day. After breakfast guests can choose to gather shellfish and observe seals on the More private beach, explore the local environs or simply relax on the verandah surrounded by native bush and birdsong.
