We stayed for one night under the pear tree with our young boys (1 & 4).
Such a beautiful setting with a nice green patch to put the tent on.
It was pure joy to be surrounded by friendly horses, happy chickens a newborn foal and cute little kittens!
Thanks Lesley and family for a lovely stay!

We would like to thank Lensley and Mark for our stay over the weekend. The farm is amazing and perfect for families. The area was nice and grassy with flat grounds and we were surrounded by cows, horses, ponies. Our kids had a ball and Lesley and Mark were so lovely and extremely accommodating.

Beautiful place to camp. Tucked in under the pear tree surrounded by chickens, mini horses, galahs and dogs. Stunning hillscapes and very close to coast, hills etc. Lesley is super lovely, and was awesome with letting our 2yo explore and get to know the animals. Highly recommended.

Nice clean campsite under the pear tree adjacent to paddock with horses, though you need to be aware and careful of the electric fence, if you are camping with little ones, as it is right next to the campsite.
Toilet and water are close by. Short drive to yankalilla and Normanville.

A great location. Th kids really enjoyed having the animals to go and see, especially the mini ponies. Toilet was neat and clean and Lesley was a great host. Would certainly recommend to others.
