One guest told us she had never felt so relaxed and didn't want to leave!!
We have various produce growing on the farm, whatever is seasonally available at the time and of course depending on our gardening skills, whatever we have available to share will be left in the cottage to either use throughout your stay or take home!! Guest AccessGuests have full use of the cottage, it is a completely independant dwelling, with its own access road/driveway. There is an outdoor setting, 2 burner bbq and firepit, all for use (in appropriate season for firepit) by the guests. Guests are welcome to pack a picnic to have within the cottage boundary (watch this space - picnic baskets will be available to purchase). Interaction with GuestsWe are a family of five and live on the property however we are well away from the cottage (about 200m). We like to greet guests on arrival so we ask guests to advise us when they have turned off the highway so we know when to expect you but other than that we like to give guests complete independence and privacy - after all, isn't that usually the reason to get away - to have some time out!!
If guests require any information on the area, we are available and happy to help when we can. We like to keep abreast of any planned activities in the area and can let you know through pre-stay correspondence or when you arrive ie festivals, markets, shows etc. The NeighborhoodWith beaches just 30 mins away and rural experiences like the award winning Honeycomb Valley Farm, wineries and the gorgeous, quaint and ever-growing village of Nabiac all within 15 mins, the cottage offers high end accommodation in essentially a central location .
