We spent 2 nights in one of the rammed earth spa bungalows. It was a perfect weekend away, we eat organically and as much biodynamic food as possible so to see how this is done on a much larger scale was inspiring.
The bungalows are huge and equipped with everything you need to get away from it all. We where given the most yellowest of yellow eggs from their chickens and picked our own vegies to make breakfast. The farm has an easy walking track so you can see the boar, pigs, sheep, geese and cows. We also purchased some of the Zinfadel wine that they make organically; it is delicious and will definitely be ordering more!
We will definitely be back and would recommend Burnside to be in 1 of our top places to stay. It’s only a $15 cab fair from town for those who want to drink or just don’t feel like driving
There are so many organic inspired farm stays/retreats but seem to almost come off a bit pretentious, at Burnside we where greeted by Lara as though we where neighbours and instantly made to feel at home. The McCall family is onto a winner and you can see how passionate they are about what they do, the selection of sheets, handmade soap (with their own olive oil), heavy based pots and pans to the selection of magazines on the coffee table... We could not fault our stay and the only problem we had was that it was not long enough.
Thanks to the McCall family for an amazing weekend!
