Had a great time on the farm at this quiet and welcoming country retreat. The kids loved the animals and we enjoyed the peace and quiet. Val and Roddy are both very welcoming and we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Our children offer special thanks to Angus for his attention to duty as their farm guide. A+ and highly recommended.

Stayed for the one night for a college course. Val was brilliant and forever offering to drop me into town for a bite to eat or pick up essentials from the supermarket and then pick me up again at a moment's notice. The facilities are top notch, plush and modern and slept amazingly (couldn't eat the free packet of local... More
