Fun farm experience
I came with my 10nyear old who loves animals. She enjoyed being able to go say hello to the cow or the donkey wherever she wanted. We did the farm chores add on which she loved. It was fun to get closer to the animals and help care for them. This is exotic stuff for a city kid! The cottage is small, mainly a sleeping space. It worked well for the two of us for 'glamping' and I appreciated havjng a fridge. Hosts were friendly and welcoming.
Great little tiny house surrounded by animals. Easy check-in experience with the groundskeeper, met all my expectations. The solar shower was refreshing :). Great one-night stopover, and a place I'm considering another visit to as part of our homeschooling experience next year.
