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.

What a magical place!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in this lovely place. The cottage was cozy with plenty of provisions, and the surroundings peaceful and relaxing. Deb was a delight and was always there to look after us. The tour of the farm and the feeding of the animals was delightful, even for we old folks. We wanted to book again but it was booked out of course. We will definitely be back.

Family friendly, perfect break!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a weekend, and it was not long enough!! Everything is perfect, and well thought out - from the beautiful selection of teas to the highcahair and portacot being provided. We literally packed the car and escaped for the weekend!

The beds are soooo comfy and warm.

The region is stunning, and there is so much to do!

even though it was raining and cold Deb still helped our son with the animals. Beauty the pony is so lovely!

We will definitely be back :)

Best Farm Stay

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Deb & Vin for such a wonderful stay. We all thoroughly enjoyed the farm and all the animals. Sienna loved bottle feeding the lambs each feed time, collect the eggs and walking around the farm visiting the pigs, cows and chickens. Beauty the pony, well she was the one who stole Sienna's heart bringing tears to her eyes when it was time to leave. Mat & I loved the fire pit, relaxing with a wine (the cottage is in such a great location to some great wineries) sitting with the chickens and watching Sienna on the flying fox. We spent most of our waking hours outside enjoying the farm but once inside the cottage is private, warm & cosy with comfy beds. The cottage is very clean and has everything you need. A very welcome surprise was the beautiful breakie items left for us which included bacon, bread, fresh farm eggs (I miss them!), cereal, juice, milk, butter and a pantry full of all the essentials you need.

The ute ride as a big hit and we can't wait until we return so we can meet the baby pigs.

Thanks Deb for being so welcoming!!!

See you soon.......
