I stayed here with friends and we had a fantastic time. The location is beautiful and the farm is very picturesque. Most of all Julie and Mark were great company, and we loved Julie's cooking. She made a real effort for vegans/vegetarians we asked her for all the recipes. Definitely recommended!
Lovely room, wonderful breakfast!
It is a small challenge to find Mark and Julie but worth the effort! We spent a relaxing evening in a comfortable suite and enjoyed a terrific breakfast in the garden the next morning. Working the farm is certainly hard work but they found the time to have a nice chat over breakfast with me and my wife. Thanks for the relaxing and resourcing stay! -Adelaide & Jay Russell.

A special stay on a working farm with charming hosts
Tondes is a truly special place to stay – an absolute gem of a place. Hosts, Julie and Mark were warmly welcoming and friendly. Julie's cooking is superb and she uses as much fresh local produce as possible. Much comes directly from their farm, vegetable garden and woodland. The meals were delicious (including a wide vegetarian repertoire) and Julie and Mark were entertaining dinner conversationalists with a wide range of interests and local knowledge. Breakfasts were equally appetizing, generous and full of home produce. Both bedroom and bathroom were very clean, extremely comfortable, spacious and charmingly decorated. There is a pretty enclosed garden to sit in amongst all the flowers and animal lovers can meet sheep, goats, cats, dogs, rabbits, chickens and ducks on the farm. Tondes has everything needed for a lovely, relaxing holiday.
