An absolute delight. A place of peace and beauty. Early morning cups of tea on the balcony overlooking the garden and the misty hills were exquisitely beautiful.

The farm setting is a real treat for city slickers! Lots of sheep, chooks, ducks, geese, a donkey, dog, cat - no shortage of petting opportunities.
