What Lonely Planet says about us

"Surrounded by trees, this rural property has modern dorms and rooms, along with a great-value self-contained unit. There’s plenty of grass to pitch a tent or park a campervan, and the owners’ children are always keen to show off the working farm. Board games, puzzles and loads of magazines take the place of TV."
