Thank you to all our farmstay holiday guests who have enriched our lives over the years! Here are a couple of recent comments from 2015 & 2014 that you will find on Trip Advisor:
"An outstanding and personal experience..."
"Where do I start, Honeycomb Valley Farm is fantastic..."
"Great farmstay ..."
Here are just a few comments we received from our Farmstay guests in 2013. We're a NSW farmstay, offer great holidays with kids and for grown-ups, and we hope you get to visit our family farm soon too:
What an incredible 5 days we have spent on this beautiful farmstay with a wonderful family. Thank you so much for the experience, I have never seen my kids smile so much! We will most certainly be back again! Best farmstay ever! ps: Try the green tea. Delish. - The Selwoods (October 2013)
Thank you for a great 2 nights! We cannot believe how much we did in 2 days. We all had a wonderful time learnt so much and admired what you have created at Honeycomb Valley Farmstay. What a magical place. We have also enjoyed chatting with all your friendly wwoofers/staff. The kids will be talking about the farm for the next 12 months so we really must return. We will miss all the animals and their delightful ppersonalities. Thank you for sharing everything. Loved the beautiful gardens, honey tasting, herbal tea, swimming and the shearing. The Cosgroves (October 2013)
While we are here you are bring inducted into the Tourism Awards ‘Hall of fame’. You SO deserve it!!! October - Van Der Meer family
I liked picking up the chickens and riding the horses. Lucy & Edie Gillett September 2013
As far as city slickers go, we think we did okay. It was a wonderful place and Nick and the horse riding were particular highlights. Thank you for your hospitality and patience. Kathryn, Jonathan, Eliot, Xavier and Georgia Dent. 30th September 2013 – 4th October
What a great weekend, Thank you for everything, we have learnt a lot and had a wonderful time, hope to see you all again soon. Adam 19th – 21st October 2013
A very special place, lots of peace and positivity in the air. So lovely to spend nights outside under the stars, sleep in a comfortable bed then wake up to the sounds of the farm coming to life. We will be back again, and again. Priscilla Chang. October 2013
All packed yet the kids have taken off again to avoid the inevitable departure from such a unique and enjoyable holiday. Beautiful people, beautiful scenery and a beautiful experience. Already speaking about “next time” and we haven’t even left yet.
Thank you for the memories, the fleece and the fun.
Nick, Jan Marie, Elijah and Eva.
Dear Andrew, Anna, Darcy, Zac and Josie
Thank you very much for looking after us. We all had a wonderful time. Children loved the activities on the farm. We ill certainly come back again. Thanks
Caroline, Alan, Anne and James
We have had a wonderful weekend even though the weather didn’t bless us. This morning we woke up and saw the most magnificent rainbow over the fields and wow the sun is out We definitely have to come back. We all enjoyed our wet adventure, meeting all the gorgeous animals and Indra loved the feeding and getting to know more about farming and hands on activities.Thank you so much Andrew and Anna. Love from Indra, Freya, Torunn and Len.
We thank you for the great time. Our grandchildren (Bayley 9, Leyla 6 and Alexa 4) were thoroughly entertained. Andrew only had to give them some jobs to (“put chickens in their coops”, “round up the goats”) and my grandchildren hopped to it. This gave them some ownership of the farm. Your children were patient and kind. Josie explored the river with us like a friend. We appreciated your patience. Denis, Sheelagh O’Rourke & grandkids
Loved our stay here, kids had a ball, were bursting to get out the door in the mornings. Thanks again. Tim, Annabel, Oliver, Eloise and Henry.
Thank you for another brilliant stay. Something for kids of all ages and adults too. Already looking forward to next year. Best stay ever. Really looking forward to coming back.
Bernadette, Steve, Noah, Zac, Audrey
We have had a fabulous couple of days at beautiful Honeycomb Valley. Kids want to come again before they have left. Thanks for your hospitality.
Nathan, Angela, Eva and James
We really enjoyed the stay. We loved all of the jobs to do.
From the Hawkins and Krugers.
Ali, Max, Jake. Jane, Jackson and Jed.
Thank you for a lovely stay. Andrew, Anna, Darcy, Zac & Josie you made us feel very welcome and the kids adored meeting the animals and humans and being part of country life. It was wonderful and we look forward to returning very soon.

Thank you for all the things you did and for the beautiful farm stay and I hope we will be back.
Love Olivia, Dominic, Lisy and John

4th time back to “Home at Honeycomb”. We love everything about our second home, so relaxing, kids involved and full of interest and laughter. What a spot!! Thank you!
The White-Ravich clan
A million thanks for your hospitality over the last 4 days - we really wish it could be longer but we will be back - that's a promise! So many memories and too many to list but our 4yo and 2yo children waiting for "Farmer Andrew" to come and collect them for chores was a sight we both didn't think we would ever see! Take care and good luck. Stu, Tan, Skyler & Eden Rose
I love HoneyComb Valley so thankyou so much for all the stuff that we have been able to do here. I hope I get to come back here soon. All the animals are nice and sweet so thankyou, thankyou, thankyou Campbell’s! From Ava
Thanks for a lovely farm holiday. We had a wonderful time.
James, Saundra, Lucy, Hugo and Angus.
I love the green eggs, From Hugo
I enjoyed horse riding, I loved the goats, I loved the green eggs. I enjoyed riding in the trailer of the quad bike, Lucy
Always loved the horses and ‘Bok boks.’ We want to come again!
“100 nights, I want to stay here a 100 nights!” said our 4 year old Jack. He had the time of his life, and is quite disappointed that Farmer Andrew isn’t coming on our road trip! Just 2 nights but a bunch of memories and a lot of beautiful pictures from our happy kids. We loved it here!
Mark, Ngadia, Jack (4), Sam (18 months) and Charlie (3 months).
(The Belgium and Dutch family now based in Singapore)
Ahhhh! We love Honeycomb Valley so so so much! This is truly a special place, run by even more special people. We have been blessed to stay here and be a part of the Campbell family for a few weeks. Thankyou for sharing your lives and your hearts with us. Give Big Max lots of big fat hugs from us. Hopefully we will get to return someday (we will surely need to come finish mowing the back paddock). When we return we will have new recipes! Yum! We love “y’all” so much! Remember us when you sing to the chickens and play the guitar to them.
Malia and Liz.
Thank you for yet again a lovely farm stay holiday. Thank you for your hospitality. See you again soon.
Fraia, Jeremy, Sophia, Zachary and Nicholas.
Dear, Andrew and Anna, Zac and Josie - Thanks, Campbell’s, for a great start to the year and another wonderful stay on the farm. I’ve lost track, but I think this is stay No.8. Congrats on the garden and gorgeous goodies in the farm shop. We loved every minute of our stay and will be back very soon. Lisa & Ellie.
Thankyou for the wonderful stay. Thankyou Andrew for all the time you spent with our boys. They have had all sorts of holidays (Australia and Overseas) but they said this was the best ever! Their smiles say it all.
Kind Regards, Carmel, Dave and the boys.
The best possible way to start the year!!!
This time we brought home 4 chooks, 5000 bees and as usual 1000000 wonderful memories! We have already booked our April stay and we are sure to be back a few more times before 2013 is over!
Max, Noah, Joy and Hayes Van Der Meer
A couple of comments from our farmstay guests in 2012
Just wanted to drop you a line and again thank you so much for a lovely holiday. It was such a joy to watch the girls get down and dirty at the farmstay. They had such a great time and it was fabulous to see them take responsibility for their farm jobs. Again, thank you for an allround wonderful experience. We had a marvellous time! Sue & family (Singapore)
Wow and Wow! What a wonderful stay at a wonderful farm with wonderful hosts, wonderful animals and wonderful countryside. Thanks to you all for making it such a memorable time, Zephie will never forget his first time here and we will be back. We've had a blast! The Kingston-Brays
What a beautiful creation. "Meet the Bees" was a great experience and a wealth of knowledge - the creatures are truly amazing. A great insight into a sustainable small farm. Thank you, we were made to feel so comfortable and like family. Frank and Georgina
Thank you for a wonderful stay. Our girls have had the most fantastic time with the animals. You are achieving so much with your farm and we hope to visit again to see the progress. Ian, Lisa, Emily & friend Skye
Thank you for a delightful time at your farm. The children will never forget the experience they had with you and the animals. Yvonne, Deborah, Zac and Eve
Another week at the farmstay, another week in heaven! The Van Der Meer Clan
A big thank you, we all enjoyed the farmstay and Bailey would like to stay much longer. The fresh air has done us all good. Thanks again. Jennifer, Libby & Bailey
Thank you very much for having us and sharing your beautiful farmstay with our family. We regret our stay was only for 2 days. I cannot tell you how delightful it was to go on the morning feeding routine and meeting and conversing with your family. It is so serene and tranquil here compared to our busy city lives. Our kids were so at home and loved all the activities offered, especially the pony rides. The BBQ we shared with your family was quite special. We have made plans to come back. Thank you. so much. Guillermo, Carla & family
Another really wonderful holiday at "the farm" - stay No. 7 for us! Soda the pony and the new alpacas and Ben the sheep are lovely additions and great to see our old friends Hollywood, the goats, sheep, cows, chooks, gardens and those special farm animals known as the Campbell family. See you as soon as we can get back. Eloise & Lisa & extra guest Emma
We have had such a happy week with our grandchildren. It has been great to see them gaining in confidence with the animals and learning farm routines. Thank you for your kindness and patience with them. Thanks to your whole family for welcoming us into this beautiful place. And we loved Gloucester Farmers Market where with difficulty we dissuaded the girls from buying live chickens to take home! Ken & Caroline Sigrist (UK) with the Aussie grandkids Eleanor & Alice
Thank you for sharing your enthusiasm and knowledge with us. We've certainly learned a lot and look forward to putting what we've learnt to use. Loved the animals and the beautiful contryside. We wish you all the best. Sandy & Paul (SA)
A holiday full of firsts. Our first holiday as a family with 3yo triplets - the triplets first tractor ride, the triplets first pony ride, their first campfire complete with toasted marshmallows and so many more firsts to mention. Thank you for making our holiday so incredibly wonderful - a special thanks to your daughter and her beautiful way with our children. Macgonical-Allen Family
Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful farm with us. We have had a fabulous 4 days. I'm not sure Emily will sleep again after so much excitement. She is already asking for bunnies, chickens, goats and alpacas for her birthday! A future farmer in the making. As for Orla, she is still convinced alpacas are camels and the cows are elephants...a bit more work needed. Thank you again and we will undoubtedly be back The Lau Family
Happy people, happy animals, happy farm! This is what life should all be about! Thank you for the wonderful experiences! Tina
This is the best farm ever! I really like the goats! There is no farm like this farm! I will be really sad when I leave. Everyone is happy, even the animals! It was really fun making honey. Thank you. This farm is really fantastic Nisha (8)
What a great way to start the year. Thank you for another delightful stay in your little patch of paradise. See you again! Michael, Lucy, Daniel & Gabriel
Thank you to the Campbell's! We have enjoyed a superb, relaxing and meaningful holiday with you, your great kids and your amazing animals. What a wonderful way to start 2012. We hope to come back to visit you all and check on little Piglet the goat.
Sharon, Mason & Elle

Thank you for being such wonderful hosts. It's been an eye-opening experience for us all living in cities. Thank you for your hospitality.

Thank you for a new experience for our children. Alexander loved the quadbike and Hannah the horse ride. Collecting the eggs and roasting marshmallows by the fire was a hit too! With much thanks. The Faveros
Thank you for such a wonderful break. The kids have had a ball with the animals so much so they haev missed their afternoon naps each day!

THank you for sharing your home with us, it's been amazing and we look forward to sharing more campfire stories with you in years to come. Joseph, Caterina, Christian and Chiara Sterrantino
Dear Anna and Andrew (and all the others both children and animals!!) We all had such a lovely week at Honeycomb Valley that it is hard to put into words. There is a really positive feeling that comes from everything there at the farm and it is infectious. I swear even the chickens smile!
It is hard to come back to the city, let me tell you!!! We loved sharing our grandchildren's special holiday place. Such a great experience of being part of the simple rhythmns of life. Kids and big kids had a ball - thank you for giving your time so happily. Marilyn and Paul
Thank you so much for letting us stay, we all had a great time! Anita, Guy, Kate, Ben, Courtney, James, Jason, Georgie, Sebastian
Another awesome, adventure-filled, amazingly educational, active stay. Thanks once again for having us, the kids had a ball, as did we, and it was great for Nonna and Granddad to experience what we have raved about over the last 3 years...it was going to be our last farmstay, but I have a very funny feeling we'll be back! Tonnes of love and best wishes for the new projects. May they be a huge success and shining beacon to others. Jen, Michael, Elspeth & Andrew
Thank you so much for making us all feel so at home. We had a great time and learned a lot. Jennifer, Gordon, Rory & Liam

Thanks so much for letting us come - hope we can come back! The Sydney Weekender people (Evie, Cam, Susan, Duncan, Glen & Mike Whitney)
Thank you for the great time. We have had so much fun helping feed the animals, holding the baby bunnies, going on the paddle boat and trying to catch fish. Thanks for the rides on Hollywood, we really enjoyed it. The tyre swing was really cool. We loved all the animals and the campfire was great. We loved the baby goats too! The Burnhams (Matt, Carolyn, Maggie, Riley & Bryn) Holden, MA USA
What an inspiring little niche of the world you have in your care! We have had a great time, even with the torrential rain! Love and Lights, the Goldsmiths
I love your farm, it is amazing! Thank you for an awesome stay. It is a shame we have to leave but I shall take away memories with me and maybe I could be a horse rider one day (special thanks to Darcy for teaching me the tricks). I will miss you guys a lot when we leave but I have photos and memories to take away. Thanks again, Lauran (& Steve, Amanda, Harvey & Jake)
Thank you for the stay at the farm, I had a very good time here and hope we can come back and stay longer. ps: sorry I broke the egg Audrey
Thanks so much for another wonderful stay on your farm! I'm sure the kids will talk about it until we bring them back again. Special thanks must go to Darcy for doing such an amazing job with the kids and Hollywood. It brings much joy to these city folk to see the kids interacting with and enjoying the animals so much! See you again! Greg, Antonia, Bella, Will, Ava & Scarlet Selsby
This is our fourth trip to the farmstay and there will be many more! The kids had such fun again with your kids. The newborn lambs are just gorgeous, the cutest things ever! Thanks again for such a fun and memorable stay. We just love everything about this place. Lisa, Eloise & Mitchell
Best eggs (thanks chooks), best custard tarts ever (thanks Josie), best horse riding instructor (thanks Darcy) and best boys wrestling match by the campfire (thanks Zac), best hosts with patience, wisdom and kindness (thanks Andrew & Anna). In such a short space of time we have had a veritable life changing experience for which we will forever be indebted. Thank you so much. We will return. Katherine, Sebby & Rocket - The Joneses.
Thank you for another relaxing weekend. As always the kids have loved every minute and the adults have appreciated the break! Trust that you will have another productive year and that the menagerie continues to grow. With thanks, Neil, Sarah, James, Hannah and Lucy
Every time we come back here there is something new and exciting happening - but the atmosphere and friendliness and fun and happiness - stays the same. Joy, Noah & Lucy and Hayes
Thanks again for a brilliant stay! Steve, Bernadette, Noah, Zara & Audrey (from Noah: I liked everything, I would like to come again and burn marshmellows).

Once again, fantastic weekend. Loved the baby animals and quadbike ride. So good to see you all again. Wendy, Lucy, Markus

We have had an awesome stay at your wonderful farm. Thanks for the previous memories. Pete, Jake, Jonah & Adam
Great to come back again to your beautiful, calm farm. It is so peaceful up here. Had a great time despite the rain, rain, rain and mud! Paula, Ella and Gaby
An ideal place for the kids to be energetic and the wrinklies to relax. The grandchildren rarely sleep so well so they must have been exhausted by all the activities. My camera was constantly clicking and I did a couple of sketches too. Thanks for throwing open your farm. Derek & Janet Jones, UK
Thanks so much for a wonderful farm experience. Hayden loved the goats and his first birthday here. We loved every minute so thanks for everything. Nicole, John and kids
Thank you so much for your warmth and wonderful hospitality. We wished we could have stayed for longer – so I think we will be back at some stage! Thank you for catering to a little 19 month old so well and for going to so much trouble with the pony ride, and showing us all the lovely animals. Particularly loved Mikey the sheep, Jasper the alpaca and all the chickens. Wishing you every happiness and hope to be back soon. The Charkers, Canberra.
Thank you for welcoming us so kindly to your farm – we all had such a fabulous time! You have a beautiful family and gorgeous part of the world here at Honeycomb Valley Farm. Thank you! Alison, Tristan, Archi & Miller Newcastle.
Back again, The kids can never get enough of this farmstay. You were all a common topic of conversation during our year in Denmark. Now we have been to the farmstay, we really feel like we’ve come home to Australia. Thanks again for a great farmstay. Hayes, Melanie, Noah, Joy and Max.
Thank you very much for a memorable few days on your fabulous farmstay. Hamish, Lucy and Matilda had a ball, feeding animals, swinging on the tyre, riding horses and the quadbike rides and toasting marshmallows….we loved our time here and hope to be back again.
Kim, Matt, Hamish, Lucy and Tilly Kidd
Thank you for an awesome time here. We loved it sooo much we definitely should come back.
From the Berrys
Thank you for our beautiful holiday at the farm. (From Sophie Conna April 2011)
Day 1- we arrived on Tuesday and I made friends with the other guest Joy and once again with Josie, Zac and Darcy. We played in the cubby house made of tyres and cardboard.
Day 2 – we fed the animals in the morning, we also went to the tyre swing and paddle boats. We caught lilies. We also had a ride on the back of the quadbike and a bonfire (the marshmallows were eaten quickly)
Day 3 – Just woke up out of our bunk beds. About to go and play with the kids and Tashi the guinea pig. Then we went horse riding. I rode Hollywood & Cindy. I had a great time. Then I lost my earring, we all had a look for it but did not succeed.
Day 4 – Today is our last day. What a great holiday.
Thank you for our stay at the farm we had the time of our lives! (From Kye Conna April 2011)
Day 1 – Today we arrived at Honeycomb Valley Farm Stay. We hopped out of the car and straight away saw our friends (we’ve been here before) Josie, Zac and Darcy as well as Anna and Andrew. Then we went to round up the animals for that afternoon.
Day 2 – Today we went to feed the chickens and the animals in the morning. Afterwards we went to the tyre swing and had lots of swings and I went the highest at about 10 metres high. Next we went paddle boating and quadbiking but my hat fell off and I had to run the rest of the way from the tyre swing. After we had a big game of football then went for a swim in the pool to cool off. Then we had fed the animals and had a campfire.
Day 3 – Today I wrestled my first sheep. Then we got out the goats and I brought the biggest goat Harley out of the shed. Next I rode a massive horse named Hollywood and watched Darcy break in Cody the pony. Next we went to Forster, came back to Nabiac skate park where I went for a skateboard. After we came back and went for a swim. After we had a massive bonfire and we had chocolate and marshmallow s’mores. It was the BEST!!
Day 4 – Today is our last day, we’re about to go out and feed the animals.
Dear Campbell Family,
Thank you for a wonderful, adventure-filled, muddy and funny few days at Honeycomb Valley Farmstay. We have loved all our experiences and the energy of the farm. The Berry clan will certainly be back. Best wishes and see you soon.
Anne-Marie, Hayden, Hudson, Gracie, Brooklyn & Boston Berry
Wow – it was a wonderful few days with our granddaughters Bronte & Keira. They had a great time and loved the whole “hands on” bit. Andrew was so good with the girls and couldn’t do enough to make our stay fantastic. Kiera our youngest is renowned for not being able to get to sleep – she tried Anna’s ‘sleep balm’ and went to sleep every night with amazing ease, happy bunny! The accommodation was very comfortable with nice little touches thought out such as torch, great eggs, supply of tea, coffee, good bedding etc etc. Thank you again and best of luck with future projects on the farm.
Frances & Mike Langly
Thank you for the wonderful stay… a great familymoon.
Damo, Tara, Jordan, Callum, Mackinnon
We had a fantastic time, although it seemed a bit short! Ben had the biggest smile for most of the weekend, very memorable. Your whole family are beautiful and informative and welcoming and made the stay very special. Thank you so much.
Bec, Warren, Jordy, Harry & Ben Liackman
Thank you so much for a wonderful stay. It was a great learning experience on the farm especially feeding the lambs, bunnies and patting the baby chicks. Your hospitality was appreciated and we will definitely be backing the future.
Kenny, Kristie, Joanne, Dorothy & Wilfred
This was by far one of the most relaxing holidays we have had…the kids were fantastic with our boys the triplets! We have really enjoyed our farmstay here getting in touch with Mother Nature, getting to know the animals…the fresh air, fresh eggs and goat milk definitely did it for us…everything was wonderful and relaxing. Thank you guys. Igor, Irina, Daniel, Zachary, Timothy.
Had a brilliant time. Imogen and Jasper were very very sad to be leaving. Thanks again for your hospitality and a brilliant couple of days. You really did share your life and lives with us. Till next time (may it be soon).
Boyd and Lisa and family
Our third time in 9 months - we just LOVE it here. It won't be our last!! Thanks to you and the kids for such a fun and interesting time. We consider this farm now part of our life, it's perfect. - Eloise & Lisa Trueman
Thank you for a fantastic holiday! We've all enjoyed the various activities and found the farmstay cottage to be comfortable and clean. Thank you all for your hospitality and for making the extra effort to help Liz with the scooter and the extra help to ride Hollywood. What a lovely surprise to to find some toys, books and movies provided for those quiet moments. We'd love to come back again some time - Dave, Liz, Ella & Nicola Post
We had a wonderful time, it has been the best four days we have had in awhile. Thank you so much for making us feel welcome and I am sure we will be back some time in the future. All the best. -Summer, Kym & Jessie

Off to the check the chooks for the final time...it has been great fun. The kids loved it. Thank you.

Thank you for such an enjoyable and eye-opening stay. The kids had so much fun feeding and patting the animals. Your daughter was just wonderful to listen to as she spoke about the goats and all the other animals. Andrew, your patience, friendliness and activities were amazing. We will definitely be back next year. Anna, the bag of products is just amazing and I can't wait to use them. Thank you all for an amazing first visit - Melanie, Gavin, Charlotte & Dominic

Thank you for your warm and welcoming hospitalty - we have really enjoyed our stay at Honeycomb Valley. It was fantastic to see the girls experience new things and learn in such a positive environment. While they loved all the animals, Hollywood and Gigi were their favourites. Thanks again. - Luis, Michelle, Catherine & Emma
Guys, thanks for sharing so much of your farm life with us. What better feedback than to see our 3.5yo Sami enjoy herself so much. Very child friendly accommodation. Thank you. - Will, Wendy, Sami & Abby
Thank you for a wonderful stay. How great to be part of your farm lifem to cuddle bunnies, collect eggs, bake cookies in the solar oven and see how honey is made. Walking straight into the shearing of the lambs and alpacas was a great experience, but playing with your 3 "dogs" Gigi, Gwendolyn & Panda will probably be the lasting memory for our kids. These memories will all stay with us for a long time. Keep up the great work on solar energy! - Hugo, Scott, Felippa, Lotte & Thomas
Very memorable and so much to enjoy with all the animals. Highlights for Mackenzie were the pony rides and 4am rooster calls. - Nicole, Guy, Mackenzie & Nana Jenny
Kids enjoyed running about, wild and dirty and mussed up. Olds enjoyed getting 'Zenned out' on country air. What more can you ask for? - Tracey, Darren, Lara & Marcus
What a success! Kids loved it, feeding goats, fetching eggs, pony rides, seeing the animals. This isn't just a house on a farm, it is the total farm experience! Exactly what we were seeking. Fabulous hospitality. Thank you, we will tell others and be back! - Nick, Suzy, William, Imogen & Lauren
Our family have had a relaxing holiday without the hustle and bustle! Our three boys have stated that this is their best holiday ever. When asked whether they'd like to go to Dreamworld at QLD they said "No way, this is much better!". It is just a pity we could not spend more time here to experience the farm's other activites. - Djemal family
Thank you so very much for our stay here. Our boys will never forget this experience you have shown us. Your family are wonderful and you all do great work on the farm. Your hospitalty was appreciated and we hope to see you soon. Thanks again. - Grace Marie, Robert, Harrison, Alexander, Dominic & Adam Patruno
Again Awesome!! The girls love it!! Ther eis just so much to do and keep us entertained. Andrew and Anna, you and your family are great and we can't wait to see you all again next year! Hope you have a great summer. Thanks again. - Graeme, Karen, Sydney, Piper & Charlie.
Thank you so much for a wonderful experience here at Honeycomb Valley! You all have a fantastic way of making everyone feel welcome and at home here.

Can't wait to come back again. - Antonia, Greg, Bella, Will, Ava & Scarlett Selsby
Thank you for such a lovely stay. You have such a happy farm and are so good to share it. We all loved the fresh one week old bunnies and of course the fresh eggs - we ate heaps. Thanks for your hospitality. We will be back!! For longer next time. Special thanks to Darcy who made such yummy cupcajes for Frankie's 4th birthday. Thank you. Thank you.- Jazz, Gabi, Frankie, Alannah & Craig & Georgie
Dear Campbell family, third time around and it just keeps getting better! Butter making, cheesemaking, breadbaking - soon we won't have to leave our house!!! Thanks again guys, look forward to next time.
- The Tyrells
Thank you all so much, we had a wonderful time, the only problem was our stay was too short. Next time we'll have to stay longer. A big thanks to your kids for playing with our son, he had a great time. Take care and we hope to be back soon.
- Jake, Suzanne, Benjamin & Juliet Lim
Holidays with little ones can be fun! I don't know who has enjoyed it more, Aaron & I or Eden. Thank you Anna and Andrew for your warm hospitality and welcoming us into your farm life. It ws everything and so much more than we could ever have expected...your beautiful farm has uncovered the inner farm girl and inspired us. I can't think of a better family holiday! Plenty to do, the most beautiful farm animals, exceptional hospitality and red wine by the fireplace. Will be sure to tell everyone about your place and hopefully we will be back again soon with our expanding family.
- Aaron, Mel & Eden
Thank you so much for our stay, we really enjoyed everything.

We just wanted to let you know we had a wonderful weekend and thoroughly enjoyed stay with you. I said to Sara yesterday, money can't buy the great memories we have from the time we spent on the farm. In particular Mia loved the horse riding and we loved watching her. Thanks once again. .
- Rohan, Sara & Mia
We've had the BEST time! Mum, Dad and all 4 boys have enjoyed every minute of our stay and every aspect of the farm. The list is too long to write down, but there were many firsts to look back on, and many favourite things. Previous visitors have listed all the "fun stuff", but what has to be mentioned again is how wonderful the hosts Andrew & Anna are. Wow, you guys make the place. Your hospitality, warmth, patience and time with our boys and openess was amazing. Thank you for everything. In just 6 short days we have fallen in love with farm life.
- Maxine, Abe, Jeydon, Jierem, Rohan, Shannon Usta

- Lee & Lucas
Yet another great break from the ordinary, with the extra-ordinary. You have created something very special for your family, which will continue to challenge the worth of "city ordinary". As always your friendliness and funnyness is much appreciated. Until next time....
- Anne Maree, Rob, Jacob, Adam & Patrick
Thank you so much for another lovely time at your wonderful farm. The kids have enjoyed it so much and so have we! We'll treasure our memories of this trip until we can visit again - hopefully with another mini-stone in tow. We can't wait to see what other amazing additions you've made to the farm next time. Best wishes.
- The Stones
Fantastic holiday. You guys really know how to run a farmstay. Thank you especially for your endless patience with our girls. It's been so much more than just a holiday - it's been a real experience.

- Donna, Anthony, Rebecca & Nicole
Here are just a few comments we have received from our Country Road's Farmstay guests in 2009:
We can only echo all the wonderful things written by enthusaistic guests before us; great hosts, beautiful farm, fun and relaxation for all. Spending Christmas here was truly a joy and we leave for the big cities of Sydney & Shanghai with clean lungs, healthy glow and about 300 photos of our farm experience. Your life changing choice to become "useful" is certainly inspirational. Thank you for a great holiday! Karine & Pieter Oyens recommended you highly.
- Marnix, Florentine, Timothy & Cai Drysdale
You have all been the most wonderful hosts. This has been an excellent break for all of us. Eden has loved collecting the eggs, feeding the animals, catching the chicks, the bunnies and the antics of the goats. Her love affair with Cindy & Hollywood has been amazing to watch. The cabin was excellent & the pool a bonus. We cannot thank you enough for making our farmstay an excellent experience. It would be nice to think we will be back again.
- Karen, Eden and Grandma Kath from England
Thanks so much for a wonderful farm experience. We enjoyed our time here and will be back.

For the third year running we've had a wonderful time!

It was great to see you all again and we're already looking forward to the next time!
- Jackie, Richard & Sam
The only reason we won't be back until 2011 is because we are overseas for all of 2010...but first stop when we get back will be your farmstay!
- Hayes, Melanie & family
It's great to see that so much continues to happen at your fabulous farmstay. We always go home with new ideas and a bigger love for natural and pure produce. Your great garden inspired our little herb patch back home in 2008, and in 2009 the chicken coop at our grandpa's place. It was great to see you all again and thank you for a wonderful weekend.
- The Boustany's
You guys are awesome and your farm is excellent. We loved every minute and only wished we could have stayed longer. Thanks and see you again.

WOW - how fantastic a place and experience, the surrounds are fabulous and the hospitality and gorgeous hosts - it was so much fun. Maybe we'll have to do Adam's solution - just move our home here! Tanks and see you again.
- Tali, Tamara & Adam Leizer (+ Bernard & Pola)
Thank you for a wonderful stay. We really enjoyed feeding the animals and riding on the tractor and showing us the farm. Everyone was very friendly and made us all feel very welcome. We also loved stroking the bunnies, riding the horses and swimming in your lovely warm pool. We also had fun collecting fresh eggs.

Thank you for your warm hospitality and patience with Zoe and the egg collecting. We all had a great time on our first farm stay and it won't be our last.

Thanks to your kids for playing with ours!

A big thank you to you all. We had a great time and will be back next year. Too many good things to pick a favourite.

Thank you for sharing your beautiful farm with us. Nathan (10) became a farmer overnight. Tyler (7) was a chicken farmer and Edyn (4) a horse farmer.

What a fantastic time we have all had on your wonderful farm. Thanks for including us in so many fun activities and for helping make Josh's 5th birthday such a memorable one. We look forward to a return trip to sample some delights from the orchard as we have from the veggie and herb garden. Thanks to your son for entertaining Josh so vigorously! And to your girls for looking after the girls and teaching us all about the animals and their histories. You should be so proud of the lives you have here, we have so enjoyed sharing them for 4 days.
- The Tamkes
Three generations of Grosses' had a wonderful few days (despite the rain). Loved the animals and the campfire. Tashy rode Hollywood (grandad wants to next time) and Marli will definitely ride Cindy and not just sit on her next time. Enjoyed meeting your lovely family and sharing the farm with you all.
- The Grosse family
Thank you so much for our wonderful stay. We had so much fun. There are so many things to do, we learnt so much. Accommodation was very comfortable, you had everything here for us, next time we will need to pack less. We loved your naimals, you can see that they are so happy here, part of the family. See you all again soon. ps: Indigo woke up at 11pm last night wanting to play with the animals.
- Aaron, Julia, Ebony, Indigo, Bronson, Pa & Nanna
Campbells - You are the bees knees! Thank you once again (4th time) for sharing your wonderful farm and super selves with us. We leave as always inspired to be a little kinder to ourselves, our kids and our world.
- The Straetemans
The girls have arrived back in their city world, determined to grow some herbs or veges and make compost!! How can I thank you for the incredible experiences and wonderful memories you gave us. Quite frankly, there is no way. What you gave us is priceless. They can't stop talking about it and are already pestering me about when we are coming back. This was far beyond anything I could have expected...It was delightful hanging out with you all and getting to know the kids.
- Annette, Manly
Dear The Cambell family, Thank you so much for letting us have a great time on your farm. It was amazing feeding all the animals. I had a brilliant time. The honey was SO good. It was fun wrestling the alpacas (and just to tell you I didn't know what an alpaca was). Thank you a million times. I love your farm and we will be back!!!
- Ashley (7)
Thank you so much for our wonderful stay at your farm. I am so glad we came to your farm and not another. We are definitely coming back for another holiday to see you and all the animals again. I loved how we got to pet all of the animals and help as much as we liked. I loved riding in the back of your ute and having the cows and bull charging at us. It was really cool swinging about 20 feet off the ground in the tire swing and being able to explore. I found the billabong absolutely amazing and I got filthy! I love Blaze the orphaned calf and feeding him his giant bottle was magic. I also loved the bees and the honey they made was the best honey in the world! So thanks for letting us come to your farm and enjoy all the wonderful experiences I have. Lots of thanks for your kindness
- Sarah (10)
Another great stay. Kids love the animals and the rides. We look forward to coming back.
- Hanh, Martin, Celine & Aden

- Saskia, Chantal, Gigs and Fien
Great hospitality and chance to unwind and relax. Mitchell loved the animals, the horse ride, tractor ride, pedal boat and tyre swing. We would recommend Country Roads Farmstay to anybody.

"Hoppy" the bunny will be our everyday reminder of our great time with you.
- Dave, Mish (Splash), Josh & Coby New

- The James Family - Sal, Chris, Casey, Lucy, Darcy
What a truly remarkable holiday. Your hospitality is so warm and welcoming and your family is great with visiting kids. The kids have had a fantastic time and even "little Andrew" is now a budding farmer -- he's had a ball! Thanks, thanks and thanks again. Am sure we'll be back.

Thanks for a lovely stay - Luke is now a confirmed farm boy! He just loved all the farm activities + animals and of course his favourite "Farmer Andrew"! Thanks again, we hope to be back soon.

It is a great honour that we get to finish the last page in this guest-book (ed: new guest book on the way!). We have been here 6 times and this certainly won't be our last. We have read through the many wonderful comments in the book and agree with every one of them. In short: we haven't been to heaven, but this is good enough for us.
- Hayes, Melanie, Joy, Max & Noah
We all had a fantastic time. Such great hospitality and so welcoming. Good luck with everything and we hope we can come again some day.
- Sam, Lee, Harry & Libby (Singapore/UK)
