Be prepared, Ecofarm is still a work in progress - half the building is to be constructed at a later date and there is no reception area as such - but this is what makes it special. The rooms that are available are amazing - spacious, huge windows to stunning views, and groovy, thoughful design. I was a solo traveller and the family invited me to eat my evening meals with them, so I was able to try a range of local dishes, and I was invited to drink tea and their locally brewed wine; I felt like one of the fmaily rather than a guest. Eco - the member of the family who speaks English - was awesomely helpful and friendly in terms of organising my time in Yangshao and other travel arrangements. The guesthouse is located outside of Yangshao town, so you need to get a taxi for 40RMB to get there and it takes about 10-15mins (but this is because the road is rough rather than it being too far a distance). Once there, they have bikes you can use to explore or Eco can drop you into town on a motorbike rickshaw for a small cost. I enjoyed staying out of town - it was peaceful, the scenery was inspiring and there was a gorgeous swimming hole a short walk away.
