We had the best weekend here! Our 3 girls just cant wait to get back!

  • 5 of 5

Deb couldn't of been a better host if she tried. We were lucky enough to bottle feed baby lambs and had endless pats and brushing of the gorgeous pony, Beauty. Our accommodation was warm and cosy just like home and our bacon and egg breakys were to die for. There is EVERYTHING you need and more. Thank you Deb for making us feel so very welcome, we cant wait to come back!

We want to come back! Perfect farm getaway

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Pyrenees Farm Stay. Deb was the most wonderful and lovely host and we were sad to have to say goodbye. She took us around and we were so lucky that some two day old lambs were being looked after at the time, we also saw the pigs, very cheeky minature goats (who love to eat your shoelaces), their beautiful pony, horses, chickens and dogs! We only stayed one night but wish we could have stayed for a few nights. The accomodation itself was super comfortable and homey, we played board games during the night and woke to the beautiful morning sun and sound of the animals in the morning. We really hope to come back soon. Thank you so much for everything Deb, you're the best :)

Very peaceful with lovely hosts

  • 5 of 5

A lovely out of the way farmstay. Very quiet and calm. Vin and Deb are very helpful and friendly but stay out of your way if that’s what you prefer. There are cute little animals for petting for the kids and my dog was very happy staying here.

A wonderful place to switch-off

  • 5 of 5

Thanks for your hospitality Deb, we had such a relaxing time away from our routine and thoroughly enjoyed our mixture of sleep-ins, farm and driving day-trips to take in the region. Our kids are already missing beautiful pup Daisy, but we have some lovely pictures of all three of them together smiling - Daisy playing her part beautifully!

The fresh eggs were incredible (we'll miss them) and Luke would love to know your preferred supplier of bacon - so delicious.
