Interakcija s gostima
We are a busy family with 2 teenage children so although someone is usually around the property your time here is private. We will endeavour to be available (if required) for suggestions on activities etc. (We apologise that at some times the animals will take our priority such as orphan lambs, horses etc.) You will find the animals are keen to interact and be fed, petted etc. particularly the Stable Cat "Shades". The chickens and Ducks also enjoy Bread crumbs or wheat/Oats on the front lawn.
We are extremely flexible with arrival and departure times - we want you to enjoy your stay and not feel rushed or under pressure to either arrive or depart. We try not to have the unit booked either side of your stay with us.
The local hotel at Charleston is a classical country pub and one of our favourites in the hills. However, the Oakbank, Balhannah and Woodside hotels also serve fantastic meals and atmosphere.
Due to farm animals we are sorry but no pets.
Stables and yards are however available for horses please enquire for costs
