We arrived from Canada in December 2009 (not '10, but hey, I couldn't go back another year). I thought this place was a hobby farm, not a real one! We were there in the cold and the rain for three nights -- way too short a time to experience this place -- and we still loved it. Phillip was wonderful. His red wine is probably one of the best bottles we have ever tasted (period). Our youngest at the time, 10, loved the dogs (who, as someone else reviewed were friendly but not intrusive). The accommodation is lovely, quaint, spacious, clean. (Our other two boys were 14 & 16 and we had lots of space.) We are runners, so ran the property. It's amazing. If you are looking for a restful vacation, or a family vacation where your kids learn some real stuff about farm living or you just want to visit the sights nearby (and there are lots of those too), you will love this place. We need to come back. Longer.
