“Stunning scenes and amazing hosts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

Kate and Brett have created a real haven at Tilnik Farm. As hosts, they are welcoming and helpful, always taking time to either show you the best places to go, guide you on a good walk or provide you with a lovely bottle of Slovenian wine.

We stayed in the smaller apartment on the farm and felt at home there immediately. The terrace is an amazing place to sit out and eat, taking in the stunning views of the valley. We cooked our own meals there every night, because a glass of wine on the terrace at sunset was our favourite part of the day.

Additionally, the farm is ideally located for visiting Slovenia's fascinating caves, beautiful rivers and generally breathtaking nature. We would highly recommend that anyone who loves the beauty of Europe, but is less keen on tacky tourism, stays on this wonderful farm.

We, a Dutch family of five, stayed in the big appartment of Tilnik Farm for one week during high season. To us Slovenia in general and the Tilnik Farm in particular was a revelation. The country absolutely matches the beauty of its neighbors, yet it is quiet,laid back, relaxing and very affordable. People are truly friendly and welcoming and generally have a sound command of English and German. The Tilnik farm is situated on a little "shoulder" overlooking a majestic valley and affords great views of the surrounding mountain range. The region is graced with crystal clear rivers and lakes, great hiking trails, charming villages, and interesting historical sights spanning a period of over 40.000 years! The big appartment is well designed and beautifully appointed with furniture from the region. It's got all amenities you need and is adorned with a covered terrace inculding a BBQ. Kate and Brett are wonderful hosts who will do everything they can to make your stay pleasant. They produce fantastic local delicacies,will be glad to guide you on "off the path" walks through their own forest and spring together with their lovely dogs and are a great source of information on the region and Slovenia. Our family enjoyed the week tremendously and we can wholeheartedly recommend Tilnik farm to everyone in search of nature, tranquility and authenticity .

We stayed 4 nights at Tilnik farm and it was by far the best part of a long trip across Europe.
Apartments are really nice and the surrounding environment is wonderful (mountains, rivers, forests, small villages...).
We can only recommend this lovely place with a special mention to the hosts who are not only really nice but are also always ready to give advices and share their secrets about the area.

We spent 2 nights at the Tilnik Farm with our 2 kids and we found it a truly amazing place.

The rooms were very clean and with all comfort. View of the surrounding mountains from the balcony.

Kate and Brett have been great hosts.
We enjoyed Kate's cooking skills, using mainly homegrown ingredients (even our picky kids loved it!) and it was much fun to help Brett moving the sheep to a their new ground.

We hope to come back again!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Tilnik Farm is a traditional Slovenian farmhouse which has been converted into 2 luxury apartments for guests. It is situated on the Western side of Slovenia 8km from Cerkno in the foothills of the Julian Alps "the sunny side of the alps". The Farmhouse is available all year round with walking, fishing, swimming, water sports, horse riding plus many more activities in the summer and skiing in the winter. The farm is set in an elevated position looking down the Idrijca river valley. This is a working farm with animals surrounded by organic gardens and hay meadows, fruit trees and forests. There is a large stream running through the property with deep clear pools and waterfalls containing Cray fish and rainbow/brown trout this eventually joins up with the Idrijca River. The overall aim of Tilnik Farm is to have a self-sufficient enterprise combining sustainable tourism with organic farming. At the moment the livestock of the farm includes; sheep, goats and chickens providing fresh eggs, dairy and meat and a Vietnamese pot-bellied pig. We have our own renewable fuel (firewood, hydro electric and solar powered energy). The Farm is run by Brett and Kate Bedford with their two dogs Lupa and Ruby who re-located to Slovenia in 2005. They live on site and try to help guests get the most out of there stay by offering advice on places to visit and what to see in Slovenia. They also offer fresh, organic farm produce and pick your own fruit and veggies. ... more   less
