We spent 2 nights at Westwind and enjoyed the quiet location and lovely views from the verandah. Each evening our hosts took us on a walk through the bushland which was a great experience. We were lucky enough to see three moreporks. Ian said this was the first time they had seen these birds on their property in all the years they'd been there.
We had booked dinner the first night as we'd been travelling all day and there are no cafes close by. We enjoyed the roast lamb and veges and there was a bowl of fresh strawberries for dessert but thought $45 was a bit overpriced for the dinner. The second night, we brought home a takeaway meal and Linda heated it for us in the microwave. We enjoyed this with a glass of wine on the verandah, overlooking the beautiful countryside.
The room was lovely on our arrival with great attention to detail. The second day, we came back from a day's sightseeing to find our room just as we had left it in the morning with the bed unmade - we later read a notice that said you had to ask if you wanted the room made up.
This would be a great place for animal lovers. There were a few pigs on the property and two dogs, 5 puppies and 2 Persian cats live inside the house. We weren't too keen about the cat up on the kitchen table. The cats obviously have free run of the house, including guests' bedrooms. We weren't allergic to cats but if you were, this place wouldn't suit you as the chairs have cat hair on them and the cat was groomed in the living room.
We enjoyed the breakfasts - especially Ian's pancakes the first morning and there was a good selection of juices, yoghurts and cereals. Linda helped us with our sightseeing plans in the area, suggesting a couple of routes for a day trip the next day.
We were made to feel very welcome and felt that we'd had a real farmstay experience.
