Our family has been on the property since 1984, originally for Lesleys Shetland Pony Stud...We have alot of animals, art from local regions and organic gardens for guests to wander through. We feel very lucky to be able to share our special place and meet new people along the way.
We have 8 fully self contained accommodations scattered around the farm, each having their own complete private entrance.
June 2016 is the first time we've put the cottages online to book. We run on word of mouth and off road guests usually, so far it's worked and have met some amazing people! When we host guests it's more about the experience as a whole, not just the room you temporarily live in...
We look forward to hosting your stay, and hearing your story :)
