  • Description

    Description

    We have a beef farm with large vegetable and fruit garden which Kevin looks after. Environmentally friendly practices are observed throughout. We are very much in touch with nature and respect our beautiful surroundings. We grow all our own fruit and vegetables using organic practices Ber is very interested in art and craft and enjoys making gifts and cards from recycled products.
    Our facilities and location are best suited to two people (for example 2 friends or a couple) travelling together. Our accommodation is for 2 people sharing and, as this is a very quiet place, some company is important. We have a small B/B which we run ourselves.
