About the Shed and Breakfast:
From the outside, the unit looks like just that. A shed. But never judge a book by its cover...Inside, the space has been transformed into a self-contained unit with a split level, open floor plan. The private space includes a bedroom, lounge, reading nook, breakfast bar, and kitchen. The bedroom has a queen size bed that sleeps two, and the lounge can sleep three (the reading nook converts into a double bed and there is also a single futon).

Mornings on the Farm:
The sun rises just outside the large windows in the bedroom, flooding the room with early sun. Mornings, especially in the spring can be lively. The birds wake up with the dawn and start their frenzy of nest making and feeding outside the shed. Also, farming activities start early so do not be surprised to hear the quad bike running around the property at early hours! Guests, however, are welcome to sleep in as late as they want to.
