    The view from the pool is possibly something I will never forget, but the standard of the rooms and the overall ambience of the farm was great. My wife and I felt we could have definitely stayed more than the 1 night we did for...More

    Nadine H
    Dear Sir or Madam, we would like to book your wonderful guest house from 23.-25.03.2016. We travel with 2 adults and our 3-years old son. Our son doesn't need a big bed, this would be to big (to high) for him to sleep alone in it. At home he still sleeps in a baby crib/baby cot. We would like to rent a nice suite with a baby cot or a mattress or something like that to place in our room. Is this possible? Which kind of room you can recommend for me and my family? Thanks for your reply. Kind regards Nadine and family
