Clean and comfortable, we enjoyed the peace and quiet and the walks and dogs.

After a wonderful but hectic holiday all we needed was a place to rest overnight with silence, simplicity, friendly hosts and a bunch of farm dogs that made you feel instantly welcome. Birds, pepper trees, big hot bath and a working farm experience made it a great end to our annual leave. If you visit don't forget to take the dogs to the dam, that in itself is a joy to the heart. Most enjoyable.
