Here’s our first ever Farm Stay package! We thought we would offer this to our guests who would like to visit us in the off-peak seasons and it represents a saving on the regular ‘Fare’ tariff which we kindly ask of our guests. A few of our guests are not quite sure what activities and excursions are available so we have combined a farm stay with some ideas. It is an ideal 'short-break' - a time to relax or get involved and just perfect for kids! This 3 night / 4 day stay, which is based of 2 adults and 2 children, includes all activities as listed but your stay can be extended and additional excursions suggested. For those guests who would prefer to take life easy and just relax on the farm with just the minimum of off-farm outings then, of course, the farm is available for regular sojourns! We can also make cost adjustments as to the number of adults and children so please use the cost as mentioned as a basic guide. As this is our first farm stay package please feel free to make any suggestions or if you have any observations and would like to share we would be delighted! We look forward to welcoming you to our farm! Best wishes. From Ae
