      We arrived at the farm on the 12th of June. We were greeted by Isaac and shown to our accommodation. We stayed for about an hour and the place was not up to standard. I will not elaborate because standards and perceptions differ, but we decided to leave. Jenny was very understanding and had Isaac gave us back our money. We left. I later sent an email to have our deposit paid back, but up to now, I have not heard anything. I do not view this as a cancellation, therefore the cancellation fee does not apply. More photos of the surroundings is also maybe a necessity to make an informed decision.

      We had such a beautiful stay and Isaac was pleasant to deal with and helpful! We'll definitely be back.

      Our stay at the farm was peaceful and most enjoyable. The cottage is beautifully appointed and very private. Jenny was very helpful and patient too. This is exactly what we needed for a weekend away from the city. We will certainly go back there many more times in the future and will recommend the farm to others.

      Jenny, your place was awesome and we will definitely make use of the farm house again. It was so relaxing, just what the doctor ordered. We needed that break more than you know. You and your staff were so friendly and we think you can be proud of that little place. It is really stunning; you must also be complimented on the quality of the service you offered us! Overall, our experience was most enjoyable, we really enjoyed the solitude and quietness that "The Farm" offered us - especially if you want to just relax and do absolutely nothing, in peace and quiet!
