What the farm offers
The Silo Hut provides fully self-contained accommodation for 2 adults. The two grain silos belonging to the original dairy have been beautifully converted to a farmstay by our local builder Mark De Hoogh. The crafted interior is comfortable and attractive, comprises two tall, round rooms with peaked ceilings, a bathroom and a verandah. The walls and ceilings are made from plywood and there are plantation pine wooden floors. The Silo Hut is elevated and provides picturesque views of the valley, the river flats and hills. One silo is a bedroom / living area and the other silo is the kitchen.There is a verandah at the front and a bathroom at the rear.
The Garden Studio is at the side of the farmhouse. It is a roomy tiny house, with one bedroom, an ensuite, kitchen living area and verandah. There are beautiful views of the farm, parking space for two vehicles and a simple outdoor BBQ to use if the weather conditions permit. It is a simple space where you can relax with some books and magazines, cook a healthy meal and enjoy being on a farm surrounded by birds and animals.
