This was our first farm stay, and it really was tremendous. Elaine was very good with our 7 year old boy, who has mild autism. Mornings and afternoons he fed the animals with Elaine, looked for chicken & duck eggs, played with the puppy and had pony rides, and during the day we went to Bathurst (10 minutes away). The Hillview unit is very nice, and has a separate main bedroom and a bedroom for kids. For those needing to stay connected there is wifi and the mobile phone reception was good. The BBQ facilities and camp kitchen were great too. We intend to return!
