Thank you Elaine, Ken, Sam, Tom and Jo. We had a terrific few days at Barcoos. The kids loved all the activities and have been hard pressed to decide what was their favorite - possibly a tie between riding the gentle giant Prudence and tractor driving. We stayed in the 'sheep paddock' in our own caravan - the interaction with... More

We had a fantastic few nights staying in the Hillview unit with our 2 kids (5 & 8 years) during the week. Elaine & Ken are very welcoming and the kids had a ball getting involved in all the farm activities - feeding Georgie the pig, driving the tractor, throwing hay to the hundreds of sheep on the farm. We... More

We stayed in the Valley View Cottage for 2 nights with our 8 and 5 year old. I can't recommend Barcoos Farmstay enough. It was perfect. The kids loved all the animals especially Ruby, Carly and Georgie. Elaine was lovely, she has a wealth of knowledge and loves her animals and her freshly baked bread in the morning was delicious....

As a large group of two families we stayed in the farmhouse and loved it from the moment we arrived. The very kid-friendly dogs greet you as you drive up, and from then on relentlessly and patiently wait for you to throw them the ball. Elaine and Ken are really friendly, helpful and hardworking. The experience is interactive and the... More

What a wonderful place to go and visit. Ken and Elaine were fantastic hosts and made sure we had plenty of fresh bread and barn laid eggs to keep us well fed in the morning. We loved being able to interact so closely with the animals and Ruby made sure that we kept her entertained with the tennis ball. Can’t... More

This is a farm stay you wouldn't want to miss if you are looking for one especially for urban dwellers like us. We stayed in the Hillview unit which is good for three of us as we only occupy one room. There is another room which has two single bed and pull out which can sleep 2 to 4 more... More

A truly WONDERFUL experience that we (the parents) and our two children (2 and 6) loved. Our 6 year old in particular was "at... More

We had lots of fun at the fun! Every day was packed with activities all the kids enjoyed immensely. Complimentary freshly baked bread was a highlight of our breakfast. Chooks were generous and we had scrambled eggs too. We will be back!
