After a hearty sleep you will be offered a breakfast that could feed an army. The breakfast is made only with seasonal fresh produce sourced completely locally and even some produce sourced from the farm for example the eggs. We even offer the kids the chance to pick their own eggs for the breakfast from the farm hens. After breakfast if desired the guests can watch the cows being milked and even have a go!
