Rated 5 out of 5 by from 'farm stay' for families who enjoy luxuries Beautiful location on the hill. Very comfortable bedding. Well equipped kitchen. The owners were lovely, making every effort to make our stay enjoyable. Children fed the bulls, saw kangaroos, toasted marshmallows in fire pit, collected eggs from chickens, picked fresh herbs and fruit (even a juicer so my children could make fresh juice). Will definitely return.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great place to relax and recharge Not sure I can do justice to how great my stay here was! By the time I was booked to stay, I was pretty well mentally exhausted and probably close to breaking. Staying here worked a treat!! Great hosts, fantastic views, excellent peace and quiet. Had everything I needed to relax. Generous breakfast provisions, loved that maple bacon! Easy access to so many places in the local area but also plenty on site if you're feeling lazy. Thanks to both of you for creating such a lovely place and sharing it as well. I'll definitely be back again, I just won't wait til I'm so exhausted next time!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfection!! our stay at the lonely goats farm was perfect. Beautiful scenery, lovely accomodation and the hosts are great. The kids picked fresh oranges, and we cooked up fresh scrambled eggs straight from the chickens and tomatoes out of the garden. Wish we had longer there. We will be back for sure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great farm stay for families We loved our 2 night stay here and our hosts Kieth and Elizabeth were great. From time to time they kept our boys 10,8 ,3 entertained with the Scottish highlander cattle and the chicken coop. All our boys wanted to stay longer. The house is built from a special brick made from concrete and saw dust that insulates keeping the house at a good temp.The 2nd night we stayed we didn't need the indoor fires lit even though it was as low as 3 degrees overnight. All the beds are very warm and comfortable. There is a great outdoor fire place looking over the valley and the morning sunrises were spectacular. Highly recommend if you have a young family to stay here. Jason
