Its a nice little place ....with a real farm feel with lots of animals all around you ..from a not so friendly crow to ducks running around outside, feeding the little lambs with a bottle and the howling of jackal at night . We felt welcome. Not so much overnight stop but definitly a little place to consider if you always wanted to know how it feels to stay on a farm ...our hosts were very welcoming and ensured a wonderful stay coffee in the cupboards, fresh farm milk in the fridge and a wood fire to keep the cold out ....we will definitly go back....

We were made to feel extremely welcome and comfortable during the week we stayed there. The landscape is beautiful, quiet and refreshing.
