We turned up without a booking for lunch and there was no problem with getting a table inside which appeared to be the worst table. On being seated, we noticed a few empty tables outside with a view but was advised immediately it was reserved. Menus also were in short supply so we were given 2 rather tattered and stained... More

We booked to come here many months ago having been recommended it by many. Food was absolutely delicious - lovely flavours and beautifully cooked fish. Our 8 year old and 4 year old girls both chose spaghetti bolognese from the kids menu - bolognese was rich and full of flavour. Unfortunately they didn't have 2 out of the 5 white... More

We stayed at La Petite Ferme for two nights and were not disappointed. We stayed in one of the Lakeside lodges - the Lodges are not 5 star (nor do they claim to be) and are a little dated but they are large and comfy and were perfect for what we needed. The highlight of the stay was the cellar... More

Ignore the bad reviews of La Petite. The menu caters for all tastes and the food is delicious with excellent service. They only serve lunch but you can order a 'sunset' cheese platter for later if you can fit it in. We stayed in the Provencale suite, which was spacious and clean. There is tea and coffee, and even a... More

I have just returned from a three night stay here and it was wonderful. My friend got married here in the manor house as we had hired most of the rooms for the wedding. I stayed in the Africa suite no 3. The wine tour was amazing and John really passionate about everything. We learnt tonnes and drank the lovely... More

We did the wine tasting, absolutely awesome. Fancy the actual owner taking you on a tour, brilliant and much better than ive ever experienced. We had some great laughs and learned about the winery firsthand from the man who built it! then went to lunch which was a great experience as well!

It was recommended to us to visit La Petit Ferme so we booked the wine tour, lunch and a room in the manor house. The wine tour was great fun and from the excellent wines tasted set us up brilliantly for our meal. The food was excellent in quality, quantity and cost. The room surpassed both the tour and lunch.... More

We stopped here for lunch. The views are absolutely breathtaking. The food is amazing. The wines were the best of the ones we had in the area that day. You must must must make it here for lunch while it is still sunlight so you can enjoy the views. We didn't want to leave. Make sure you make reservations well... More
