We have just returned from a weeks stay and are all disappointed that we didn't stay longer. My daughters (3 and 6) cried half the way home and made us promise to return next year! The accommodation was clean and well equipped. Sue and Anna made the farm yard experience every morning fun and informative. We felt part of the farm family sharing in the high and lows with the birth of the lambs and waiting for the arrival of pandoras foal. The farm yard club is at 10am every morning which is perfect as we didn't have to rush waking up and breakfast in the morning and yet still had the whole day to do something else all day.
The farm is also close to lots of different beaches and cute towns to visit.
Can't wait to return ! We fell in love with country ways as soon as we arrived
