We are glad that you enjoyed your stay and enjoyed the beauty of the bush. Most of the furniture is hand crafted with lovely recycled timber, glad you liked it.. Kind regards Debbie and Graham :-)

You are treated to private quarters in their own home so you won't feel like you are staying in accomodation meant for travellers. Especially love the shower and their bed. They put your comfort foremost and it's these small details that makes all the difference. If you are one of those who enjoy being away from traffic noise and slowing down life's pace for awhile while on the road, this place is for you. I never really know what to expect when I book an accomodation but with this one, you shouldn't worry. The pictures does the place no justice. We stayed there for 3 nights and can easily do more.

This unique retreat is in a stunning, peaceful location and the apartment sized lakeside suite has the most incredible views. The rooms are super clean and spacious and allow you to enjoy the beautifull bush and wildlife on your doorstep. Debbie goes out of her way to make you feel welcome and I will definitely be back!

Tranquility plus

Pros: " The Burrow" is beautifully appointed, cosy, warm, welcoming. The bed is extremely comfortable. Great amenities.
We stayed in " The Burrow" at Down to Earth Farm Retreat and had the most relaxing time enjoying the beautiful scenery, the quiet, the wild life. Debbie & Graham have built a beautiful place on the ridge at Sarsfield you can see the love and enormous effort they have put into producing this amazing living area, one to be passed down the generations. Debbie was a warm and welcoming host, the firdge was well stocked with home made jam and yummy breakfast. I have already recommended this retreat to anyone who will list. We will definately be back :)

Amazing location and facilities

Pros: The place was very clean and tidy.
Cons: No suggestions.
Location: Amazing views from the farm, lovely watching the sunset and lights come on in the distance.
We loved our stay at Down to Earth Farm Retreat. We couldn't take our eyes off amazing views from the living room and the hosts were lovely. We wished we had more time to stay at the farm. It was a wonderful experience with attention given to every little detail.
