We wanted to bring our son (21mths) away from the city and experience nature plus farm stay.
We stayed 2 nights at the forrest cottage, and upon arrival were greeted by free roaming ducks, guineafowls and chickens! Hosts were very detailed and friendly, their readily available fire guards, baby chairs and cots meant they had anticipated the issues that many family would have.
The cottage offers a view of the expansive land beyond the farm, and was situated just beside the sheeps hold. I had my son singing baa baa black sheep everytime the sheeps come near!
Morning hay ride was a blast, feeding the friendly farm animals. Sheeps, goats, cows, horses, donkeys, chickens, ducks, guineafowls and if you are lucky, some bunnies which we spotted.
Plenty of different species of birds, in amazing colors.
There is a supermarket in the nearby town, so you can get some supplies for cooking or bbq.
BBQing under the star filled sky was also a sight to behold. Pity i didnt have a capable camera to capture the sight. It was easier to for my son to see stars vs in the city!
There were also a first for me. Singapore doesnt require fireplace, so it was my first time building a fireplace, chopping up the timber, and starting the fire. (Timber was already chopped down in size, but chopped it down further for the fun of it!) There is a easy to follow instructions in the cottage.
We will definitely return if we ever plan another trip to western australia.
