  • This place is amazing! Wish we could have stayed longer...

    This place is amazing! Wish we could have stayed longer. The kids loved feeding carrots to Boots, the rabbit. We also enjoyed having ducks just over the fence. They would hear us playing in the yard and would all come up to the fence to beg for some bread. We also enjoyed a tour of the farmyard, especially getting to sit on and brush the pony. House is large with plenty of room for the kids to play. Kitchen is well-stocked. Nice warm blankets on comfortable beds. Everything we wanted!

  • Lovely coastal location with easy car access to a number of beaches

    Lovely coastal location with easy car access to a number of beaches. Historical area for those who enjoy delving into the past. We didn't have a chance to explore the farm or interact with the farm animals because of time restraints, that well be fun next time. Our dog Jet enjoyed the enclosed garden area and we enjoyed the peace and pastoral vistas.
