Cleanest farm-stay ever!!!

  • 4 of 5

Michelle & Howard were lovely hosts & their rescued animals from Molly the racehorse to Betty the greyhound made me & my 2 kids welcome. Our little family dog was allowed to experience this farm too. The accomodation was the cleanest I've stayed in - spotless kitchen. I've never seen a stainless steel kettle & toaster & all their taps shine so much! Once every 15 years the neighbouring plantations are logged. But we worked around this & still had an awesome time visiting Hollybank Adventures & Lilydale Falls all really close to Red Rooster Farm. Highly recommended for kids to explore safely and play frisbee & ball games to experience the freedom of farm life.

A unique property in a beautiful location!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay, although unfortunately only had a couple of nights here. The surroundings are peaceful and beautiful.

The kids thoroughly enjoyed helping feed the animals in the mornings and say this was their favorite place to stay on our trip.

The cottage is cosy but had everything we needed. The lovely welcome pack of goods was a nice treat. There were lots of things provided which often you do without when traveling (even just having some basic herbs and spices on hand was really helpful).

Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Great farmstay experience

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 4 nights with our 2 young daughters and had a lovely time. It is a very relaxing place to stay and the owners are just lovely. Our 6 year old daughter still talks about how much she enjoyed feeding the animals and we loved being able to pick some fruit and veges from the garden - especially the raspberries and loganberries! The accommodation had everything we needed and the bread, jam, eggs etc were a treat. Very reasonably priced and highly recommended for families.

The property did not live up to the blurb, it was only a hobby farm. Unfortunately the place was infested with European wasps

Owner's Response: Hello Gary Sorry you did not find our hobby farm to your liking, to be fair the wasps are certainly nothing to do with us and the running of our place. I totally agree at certain times of the year on warmer days they can be a problem. The property is advertised only as a Hobby Farm on all sites !

My partner, 7yo son and I stayed here for a long weekend and just loved it! The property is off a dirt road, nestled in amongst the hills. The sky at night provided a blanket of stars, the mornings were full of native sounds of the kookaburras, peacock, rooster etc and the accommodation was perfectly rustic (beds were super comfy). We had a lovely time and would definitely stay again. Host Michelle was very accommodating with our young son and we helped feed the animals each morning.
