Just spent last weekend in Albany at the Greenfield Farmstay... Had a Wonderful stay!!! Wish we stayed for longer....
We were looking for somewhere to stay in Albany while we visited family and I'm so happy that we came across this farmstay... Dave and Jeanette are the most welcoming and friendly owners and made us feel right at home. From the moment we pulled in the drive way we felt like we were with family.
The kids were excited about staying on the farm, the big hit for them was the kangaroos.. being able to bottle feed the orphan joeys made their weekend. The kindness and patience both Jeanette and Dave had for the kids was really was warming. It was like a visit to Granny and Pop's for the children.
The fresh warm bread brought downstairs to us in the mornings with homemade jams was delicious. There was also a good array of other options for the continental breakfast... And the walnut and date slice topped up each day, well that was too good to share with the kids
There is plenty of room for a family with multiple children, ours decided they wanted to bunk in with us and we had two full size fold out beds in the room with us and still had ample space to get around. The bedspreads are all lovingly made by Jeanette, it is so nice to see patchwork quilting still around as it's certainly not appreciated like it used to be. Some might feel the place is a little dated, but it was very homely, clean and cosy
In the kitchenette there is a full size fridge, a microwave, a two hotplate small oven unit, crockery and utensils.. even the plastic wrap (very handy for packing the slice when heading out on outing ) There is also a BBQ available to use out front of the accommodation.
The Accommodation is a B&B where you are sharing someone's home. The Hosts had the upstairs, guests downstairs, both with own access points as not to disturb the others. It was a good experience for the children to put in place; respect for other peoples belongings, politeness to their elders and maintaining an acceptable level of noise.. We were out both evenings until about 9pm and out of respect tried to keep our noise to a minimum when we were coming in. Luckily Dave and Jeanette are early risers and we didn't have to stress about our kids being too loud and waking them..
Even after we left they were still gracious hosts ringing to notify us we left behind toiletries and offering to post it to us... and tonight I received another call to let us know that the cow that we were hoping was going to calve while we were there, had just had her calf and it was a girl they named Jasmine after our daughter.. So we now have one VERY happy little girl..
Looking forward to returning..
