The wooden rooms are amazing, clean, cosy and the staff is very friendly. The meat and the ice cream they are serving are so delicious! Try the salted caramel!

We loved the friendly, family atmosphere! The family-owned farm was the exact experience we were looking for. The rooms were lovely, location was exceptional and food fantastic!

Such a lovely stay! The family room was cosy, clean and big enough for four persons. Ice-cream was amazing! My children saw cows from the restaurant and enjoyed it.
