Angels Rest Farm Retreat is a haven to relax and be yourself. Our award-winning self-catering accommodation sleeps up to five guests comfortably with beautiful views over farmland and forest and an emphasis on peace and tranquillity. Do whatever you’d like, explore our farm, take a walk in the forest, chill on the deck at the lily pond or kick back and take in the view. If you yearn to spend less time ‘at work’ and more time following dreams we hope to inspire you to do just that.
Merlin’s Cottage has 2 bedrooms, a spacious living/dining area, well-equipped kitchen and bathroom with fully-enclosed shower with WC and hand basin. You’ll find luxurious touches such as down duvets, soft feather pillows and for winter, fur-style throws and a cosy fireplace with unlimited firewood. The main bedroom has a queen bed and the second bedroom a double and a 3/4 (large single) bed. Outside there is a sun deck and boma with fire pit/BBQ. At night the stars are truly amazing and the milky way so clear you’ll want to reach out and touch. And if you’re so relaxed you don’t feel like cooking, let us arrange a delicious breakfast or evening meal. Surrounded by nature, we have one unit only so if you like to get away from the crowd be assured you will be our ONLY guests during the period of your booking.
We love our guests to explore our farm and enjoy it as much as we do.
