                                                  From the warm and friendly welcome to the old farm feel to the horses grazing outside our window our stay was nother but wonderful!

                                                  The property and the facilities are great. The rooms are comfortable and the gardens are beautiful.We had a unit situated directly across from the main house, and it was a bit busy. Next time I'll take a more isolated unit.

                                                  We arrived near dark and were warmly greeted by Niki who showed us to our accommodations and told us a bit about the activities in the area.We spent the weekend in and out of our room, busy with a friend's wedding preparations and sight-seeing. All the time we were out we felt at ease that "home" was waiting.Our two busy little children were welcome and we didn't feel as though we had to reign them in. The wide open space that the farm provides gave them place to move.
