Our host, Ward is very knowledgeable and friendly. We ate delicious muffins prepared by his wife, took in the breath-taking views of the cliff and best of all get to meet Mr Bumpy! A really lovely experience, 5-stars all the way and highly recommended!

Ward and his wife were amazing. We got to feed horses, and sheep.Saw giant eels and fed them. So many beautiful animals. We went on a private tour with him. His farm is unbelieveable. We learned about his wind turbines. Tour way better than any of the bus tours from the ship.
