We stayed there late February 2009. The room (sauvignon suite) was spacious and comfortable and had great views over the valley. Our hosts could not have been more helpful. We particulalry enjoyed the home made (and grown) breakfast preserves (loved the Rhubarb smoothie- haven't had rhubarb for years!) We also appreciated wandering the orchard and picking the fresh fruit of every kind, and being organic could eat stright off the tree - worm holes and all - with no fear of chemicals.
