We enjoyed our stay very much. The play room was ideal for our kids and the cottage is lovely. Sustainability is everywhere, implemented in everything from choice of sheets to waste management. something we love! We would have enjoyed some more info about the farm itself, maybe a little tour or the chance to help with feeding the animals. But this Read morewasn?t offered and we didn?t (dare to) ask. We did enjoy collecting eggs and seeing the animals around us. Hide
