Excellent dining options

Breakfast receives much applause from guests who love tucking into the farmhouse-style offerings each morning. It’s not only the early-morning meal that receives praise either; those dining at dinner time also enjoy the food on offer, as well as the pleasant atmosphere in which food is served.

Negative Reviews

Rough approach road

Travellers report that the approach road to the farm where the guest house is located is effectively a dirt track and not all that well maintained. Furthermore, a lack of signage can make it difficult to locate the approach road in the first place, especially for those arriving after dark.
