My family of four (hubby, me, g8, b3) stayed with Debbie and Ed on 8-9 June 2013. We were pleasantly surprised to be greeted by home made croissants, milk, juice and other supplies in the fridge. The apartment was clean and cosy with many warmers, which was really helpful for the beginning of winter. The boxes of toys came in really handy and my kids were thrilled!
Debbie gave us a list of bread to choose from, and the loaves always arrived piping hot! It was the most delicious bread I had eaten. It was unforgettable!
My family and I had a wonderful time with the farm animals despite the rain (hello snow and flake- the goats!) It was great to feed the sheep, chickens and ducks too. My girl was so excited to pick up freshly laid eggs from the hens!
Thank you Debbie and Ed for the memorable stay!
