It's hard to write a review about a place that is so good and is so well known to us. My family has been coming to Cheslwigh for many years to ride, to get away from the city, to see the whole Milky Way and be looked after like a family member.
Mike and Jan are the most hospitable hosts ever and are endlessly warm hearted, with the soul purpose of making your stay comfortable and unforgettable.
The food is superb and plentiful, the roaring campfire gives rise to conversation, and poetry which Mike recites with aplomb ( this sounds super daggy but it's SO Cool think Man from Snowy River) and often other entertainments happen! Not to mention the horse riding, bush picnics, visits to HillEnd or Sofala pub.
For overseas guests it's Australia at its best, no schmaltz. Lots of kangaroos and wildlife too.
That's why we keep going back. I forgot to mention the games room and no TV!
Don't consider other farmstays this is the best.
