We were planning to stay 2 nights but stayed 4! The home cooked breakfast was plentiful and amazing with freshly made smoothies and home made muesli and fruit salad. Plus home baked bread. I'm not a big bread eater but couldn't resist the warm bread straight from the bread maker :)
Mick and Teresa are super friendly and generous. They really enjoy what they do which makes all the difference.
Like other reviews have mentioned, it is the special touches that make this a really unique experience. I mentioned my love for camomile tea so came home and found a new box next to the kettle in the room, along with the daily baking. (cookies or carrot cake- yum!)
The WIFI worked well and Mick kept the fire blazing the whole time.
