We loved staying here. Perfect for two nights with the kids who loved the ponies and the naughty monkeys that stole our breakfast. Loved our food and the calm atmosphere and friendly Jen and the barn was beautiful and perfect accommodation. Clean and lovely and big (my only request would be to have black out curtains in bed rooms!)

Our family had such a peaceful stay. Loved reading our books on the porch or sitting in the swing. The food is divine. A real must for nature lovers and peaceful people. We could easily spend a week chilling out at Peace of Eden delighting in Jen's cooking.

Peace of Eden is exactly what they say they are on their website, quirky and mysterious. If you appreciate nature and the simple life, this will definitely be the place for you. What surprised me as someone who is definitely not vegan, nor a vegetarian, but who appreciates good food, is that I did not yearn for meat in any...

We tried to phone Peace of Eden to notify them that we will be arriving after 6pm on the first day. No one answered the landline or the mobile phone.

Im sorry you didnt enjoy your stay, however if you look at the top 10 reviews where everyone loved what we offer, then I can only believe you should have booked into a hotel instead and certainly not our vegan backpackers lodge!
