I just completed 7 weeks as a volunteering at Lydenrust Guest Farm, helping on the farm and at the Preschool Ali runs out of a converted shipping container.
This place was a real treasure to find.
Whilst there, there were several guest staying in the lodges and the attention and service that Ali provides is exceptional. Ali is very passionate about her farm and provides the best care for all the animals. Ali ensures that everyone staying there, has the most wonderful experience, be it riding the horses, interacting with the large variety of animals, or just sitting by the river relaxing and getting away from it all for a day or two.
Highly recommend and will definitely be returning
