We found friends besides the homestay.... great family and beautiful place, we took home a lot of good memories and we hope to be back next year. Thank you Biddy and Wesley for your hospitality.
Biddy has got a nice house and a lovely family. We felt very comfortable and welcomed.
This guest awarded the host 4 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
I found the accommodation very comfortable. The family was always very nice and friendly.
The area is very beautiful, It’s quiet and peaceful. You are free to take your meals in the cosy family kitchen whenever you want or the family would welcome you to eat with them.
You can be involved in family life like watching tv or sitting together with a beer, and you can enjoy all the animals round the yard or book riding lessons.
I throughly enjoyed my time here, would return any time, and would highly recommend it.
