“Just wonderful”
Reviewed 19 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Our family of 3 adults, an 11 yo child and a 2 yo child stayed in Duffy's Cottage for 2 nights. The cottage was beautifully furnished and well equipped. Lovely furniture, fluffy towels and bathrobes, books about donkeys for the kids to read, games, DVDs, even an iPod on the bedside table. We appreciated the continental breakfast provisions (milk, juice, cereal, butter, tea, coffee, hot chocolate, biscuits, a loaf of bread with spreads) - thank you. We also appreciated all the beautiful crockery - it all added to the lovely ambience.

But most of all, we enjoyed meeting and spending time with the miniature donkeys. Tippy, Sky and Daisy were so cute. Our 2 yo was initially a bit frightened of them but after our 2 night stay he was very comfortable with them. Thank you to Peter for allowing us to visit the other donkeys and for showing us how loveable they are!

I would highly recommend Donkey Tales Farm Cottages if you need to escape from the city. It's a lovely opportunity to have some quiet, relaxing time away from the hustle and bustle of the city. I had no phone coverate at the cottage so a nice break from that too.

We are so glad to hear how much you enjoyed your stay at the cottage. It gives us so much pleasure, to have visitors mingle with all of the donkeys and the donkeys love it too! You are right that it is a relaxing break from the city, that's how we ended up moving here! The cottages have reception with Telstra, but it's great if you can switch off the technology and really let yourself enjoy the facilities. Thank you for your review :)
