      Great Cottage. Everything is very clean and in a good condition.Had all the bits and bobs that are normally missing [potato peeler =) ]The solar power and gas work well and are easy to operate. We didn't need to use the generator but there are sufficient instructions to operate it. The vibe of the farm is great - gives you the real farm feel. From the farm you cannot hear or see any lights or noise other than your own.

      We really enjoyed our couple of days resting amidst farm animals, wild birds in a beautifully appointed cottage. Swimming in the farm dam at sunset is a must.
