We only had one night here and we really wish it had been longer! We stayed in one of the log cabins by the lake and wow what a view! The bird life was amazing. So many different species and being woken by the chorus of bird song was wonderful. The cabins are a 5min drive from the main house but this was fantastic as it was so relaxing and peaceful. We booked on b&b basis as we didn't think dinner was available but it was offered as soon as we arrived and I'm so glad we said yes. It was as good as, if not better than a top class restaurant and we had a great evening enjoying a four course meal with great wine! All the staff were very friendly and the owner very kindly gave us a tour of the other rooms and suites to show us what else she has available if we wanted to stay in the main guest house next time. And there will definately be a next time! This has been a real find and being on a farm and seeing how it all works was great fun. The location is perfect too for all the local sightseeing and we are already planning our next visit to this wonderful guest house.
