Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time during our 2 night stay at the Samford Valley retreat. The accommodation was brilliant, there was everything we wanted and needed and more! The eggs & bacon supplied made for a perfect breakfast on our own private deck with amazing views over the valley. Karen & Phil were fab with lots of local knowledge and recommendations but best of all for our 2 year old son was the experience of feeding the animals morning and night. His favourite was we the chickens and sheep which he just found hilarious with Karen making the whole process an exciting adventure, there were even eggs to collect. We would highly recommend a stay for the relaxing atmosphere and if you have little people the great adventures to be had, thanks again Karen & Phil
