We had an amazing time at Folly Farm Rural Retreat celebrating my partners 30th Birthday. The cottage was so charming and the garden is a delightful place to be. The alpacas provide you with an endless source of entertainment. Such a beautiful experience! Thank you to Belinda and Robert for being so kind and welcoming. You are great people.

If you're looking for a romantic getaway you'd be hard pressed to find anywhere as picturesque and charming as Folly Farm. My girlfriend booked one night for us at this peaceful and private cottage to celebrate our one year anniversary. Owners Belinda and Rob were so welcoming and hospitable the moment we arrived. The cottage was warm, clean, inviting and... More

We absolutely loved our stay at Folly Farm for our 3 year anniversary. Belinda and Rob made us feel so welcome from the first moment we met them. Little touches like the breakfast supplies (that bread!), marshmallows and chocolate made it much easier to want to stay in and relax. The cottage was absolutely stunning and included the most comfortable... More

Just loved this place! My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights for our one year anniversary. The hosts were very welcoming and helpful, we were even able to feed the alpacas they have on the farm! The retreat cabin itself was warm and light-filled and very private. The bed was comfortable, the spa for two was lovely. The... More

Our stay at Folly Farm was just perfect. From the time we first entered the tree lined driveway, opening up to the lovely (even in late May) garden with a picturesque cottage sitting in the middle we just loved it. Native birdlife feeding the lawns, alpacas in the paddock behind and brazen rabbits just added to the experience. The cottage... More

I was skeptical finding accomodation over the web especially a b&b - you don't what the owners will be like or how clean it will be, but Folly Farm was absolutely perfect.
