This is a great place to stay for families with kids and for animal lovers. We stayed in Sweetcorn cottage, very cozy, comfortable furniture, good beds. The cottage is quite big, there is enough space for a big family or two couples. We stayed here for two nights, the last two of our holiday before flying back, really wished we could stay longer!
When we arrived we were greeted by some chickens and their chicks, scratching around. Staff very warm and friendly, very helpful. Excellent kitchen with good supplies, even our breakfast was taken care of (fridge full of milk, jams, butter, orange juice, jars with muesli and several breakfast cereals, coffee and tea supplied as sugar, honey and peanut butter), gas bbq outside, but also enough tools (pots pans etc) inside to prepare a nice meal. Make sure you buy some fresh farm eggs (25c each)!
Of course we joined the feeding of the animals in the morning, kids absolutely loved it they could help feeding. Very interesting site, with lot of history. Beautiful gardens to stroll trough. Very peaceful in the evening, gorgeous views from veranda. Loved it!
