Rated 3 out of 5 by from Lots of potential Overall we enjoyed our stay at Puggle Farm, however it was obvious that it is quite new as a holiday let. The facilities and decor were pretty basic, and not up to the standard expected for the price compared to other similarly priced properties we've stayed at - however if the owner expands on these as time goes by the property has amazing potential. For example, a microwave, a working dishwasher and the provision of more pantry items such as tea, coffee, sugar and so on would be appreciated as the latter were quite sparse. Nicer furnishings and decor are small details but improve the comfort and feel of the house, especially at the price charged. Other places we have stayed also include a folder with information about the property such us how to light the fire, and details on local attractions and places to eat which is helpful. Once these small details are improved upon Puggle Farm will become a fabulous place to stay. The house was very clean and the location second to none. Can't wait to see what the owner does with the property down the track.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Relaxing holiday! We had a wonderful time at puggle farm. We were there during winter, so cold, but the fire was perfect. Thoroughly recommend if you are after a rustic, quiet holiday.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful stay We really loved staying at your farm Rick and it was lovely to meet you in person. The farm is placed in the most beautiful surroundings, so peaceful! The kids loved taking care of your chickens and collecting eggs. And we took some lovely walks around. The fireplace warmed up the house beautifully. The farm is full of character and well taken care of. I Loved reading the books in the sunroom and the girls took advantage of puzzle and games available there. We will be back one day!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Extremely disappointed I read reviews before deciding to stay at a property and either my expectations are too high or other reviewers expectations are very low. This property did not represent value for money. We paid over $230 per night for 2 adults and 1 child. Other reviewers say they met Rick. Despite spending 4 nights from 22 June to 26 June 2017, we didn't meet him. Rick didn't make contact before our arrival date to provide details such as the property address, directions and how to access the home. Rather, I contacted him the day before to check he was ready for our arrival. At the time of booking, a month prior to our stay, information about the property indicated there was a dishwasher. It wasn't working during our stay with a sticker stating "out of use". The state of the bathroom was unacceptable. The shower curtain was filthy, the hand basin and bath/shower were dirty with mould very obvious. The bathroom smelt musty and the toilet wasn't as clean as it should have been for new guests. The ash tray in the wood burning oven was full indicating a lack of attention to detail. Rick advised the day before our arrival there was no key for the house. We found it highly unusual to be unable to lock the house when we were out during the day. There were no top sheets on the beds...there were some in the bookcase on the landing though. The quilt covers had stains. Referring to the house as "quintessential" does not excuse the lack of cleanliness or facilities which don't work as expected. During our trip to Tasmania we stayed in 2 other places which were far cheaper and exceptionally clean which meant great value for money and the comfort we were expecting. We thought Puggle Farm would be the highlight of our holiday however it was very disappointing. Unfortunately, we cannot recommend this property although it does have great potential.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome stay Rick and Puggle Farm was great. We stayed for two nights and had a very nice and relaxing time. Huge kitchen, comfy beds and a big fire to get warm in front of. Highly recommended!
