Julian and Helen
More than just accommodation in a great location - Our guests have exclusive access to our 280 acre farm. You might just like to relax and enjoy the comforts of your cottage - put another log on the fire and take in the beautiful views - or you might like to be a bit more active; meet and feed the friendly farm animals, collect eggs from the hen house, gather fresh herbs and seasonal produce from the guests share garden and orchard, or take a walk down to the river or through the fern gully. Guests should note that given we are a rural property - located in a valley - we rely on satellite internet for three of the cottages (low bandwidth). Our one bedroom spa cottage - given it's secluded location - does not have wifi - However access to satellite wifi is possible when in line of sight our house/office area and throughout the region as you travel around. Contact us if you'd like to clarify.
Your hosts, Julian and Helen, are happy to assist with recommendations on the best places to visit in the region and welcome the opportunity of showing you around the place!
