Breakfast

The dining room is at the centre of your home away from home, enjoy a hearty country breakfast and share activity tips with your innkeepers and other travellers. In summer, take your breakfast ‘al-fresco’ on our covered porch, surrounded by hanging baskets and bountiful tubs. Each morning we serve a full breakfast including home baked goods, fresh fruit & dishes prepared with local fresh farm eggs, to prepare you for your day’s adventures. This is a great time to make new acquaintances or rekindle old ones. Your innkeepers, Sally & Dick will be delighted to help you plan your day’s excursions.
