Camilla                                  July                   Airbnb

I can’t recommend Mike and Pam highly enough. The cottage is lovely and has everything needed for a short stay. We were greeted warmly by Pam and Sam the dog, and nothing was too much trouble. Our boys loved canoeing, feeding the animals, learning to light a campfire, toasting marshmallows and getting to know the animals. We loved the idyllic scenery, fresh air and welcoming nature of our hosts. We all loved the beautiful breakfasts!
Thanks Pam and Mike!


Annette                                               July                

From the welcome sign to the little touches, this made our stay. Their inclusion of our children and teaching them about the animals was truly wonderful. The beautiful breakfast basket waiting each morning was a special treat. Mike and Pam have a true piece of paradise and the joy they get in sharing it with people is a blessing.

The breakfast is excellent; all home-made with fruit compote, home-made yoghurt and freshly made conserves and freshly baked bread straight from the owner’s kitchen. There is a lot or as little to do as you like and the tranquil setting is to die for with a campfire at the end of each day to sit down to.

As we drove away from our stay, the boys said…”They are such nice people! We should go and visit again” What an amazing stay with so many unique and lovely touches, from the morning breakfast delivered to our door, of fresh baked bread and delicious preserves to the gorgeous and beautifully presented cottage. It was a stunning view of the dam and the hills. The animals including  ducks, geese, guinea fowl, alpacas, cows, chickens and Sam the dog, were some of the happiest and well behaved we’ve ever met. It was something out of a picture book. All the animals had so much personality! We enjoyed kayaking on the dam and the boys really enjoyed the golfing T. The evening highlight was sitting around the outdoor fire pit. Such a fantastic place to get the kids outdoors and for a relaxing getaway. Thanks so much for having us!

Pam and Mike are exceptional hosts. They go out of their way to please and ensure your stay is one to remember. The setting beside the Dam together with the lovely animals is one to remember. Definitely the best farm stay that we have experienced.

What a fabulous place. We really enjoyed our stay here from the moment we arrived. So much to see and do, from the entertaining walks to the kayaking and the interesting chats around the outside fire place. You will definitely be seeing us again.

Thank you so much for making us feel at home and special all at the same time. We had the best time, enjoying a fire each night, relaxing in the sunshine and feeding all the animals. Breakfast was amazing each morning. Thank you for the special touches. I’m not sure how I’m going to go back to having to make my own b’fast each day, and having boring ‘store-bought’ bread. Thanks for sharing your part of paradise with us. We will be back and when we come, we will bring lots of golf balls.

Heaven!! Breakfast was excellent …all home-made.


Dylan                                     April                  Air BnB

What an incredible place to relax, recharge and to soak up the country air. The scenery is spectacular, the breakfasts are addictive, and the cottage is quaint and charming with everything you could possibly wish for. All of this is topped by the hospitality of Mike and Pam who are two absolute gems. We were there for only two nights but were made to feel so welcome and quickly became part of the furniture. We travelled with an adventurous 2yo who absolutely loved feeding the animals, and life on the farm. I could go on and on and on. This place is a magical gift that we were lucky to have shared with us by Mike and Pam, and we intend to return many times over.

Pam and Mike are absolutely wonderful hosts!! They are incredibly friendly and warm and our stay in their cottage exceeded every expectation. Their property is cosy and peaceful, with so many things to see and do...we were never bored. The breakfast each morning was amazing...we could feel the love Pam and Mike put on every single detail. Thank you so much Pam and Mike!! We will definitely be back!!

Thankyou very much for your generosity, company and graciousness in showing your special Eden. Best country stay we’ve had – you are certainly the benchmark. Many thanks and our very best wishes. …taken from the ‘Cottage Guest Book’.


Cameron                               April        

Cedar Brae is the perfect family stay hosted by the most wonderful couple.

The breakfast is scrumptious. The animals are so friendly. Sitting around the firepit is a great way to end the day. This is a little slice of heaven.


Altaf                                       April                  Air BnB

The place is very picturesque. Beautiful landscape. Peace and quiet. A great place for an internet detox. We went during the rain so needed boots. The place is easy to find and has loads of activities such as kayaking, feeding the alpacas and cows and golf. It’s a perfect country experience. Pam served some lovely breakfast in the morning.

Wow!! What an incredible Easter week-end stay we’ve had with you. Thankyou for taking the kids under your wing & teaching them all about your animals & farm life. I’m pretty sure [our son] now wants to be a farmer. Your food and hospitality was amazing & your kindness is so appreciated. We made memories that will last our lifetime this week-end & can’t wait to come back!! Thank you!!
