Wonderful, old fashioned, family holiday. There were 13 of us, ages ranging from 5 to 85. Comfortable warm rooms, plenty of hot water, delicious food, and lots to do. No TV and intermittent wifi meant an abundance of family talk time. Highly recommended!

Staying at Sunnyside was an absolute dream. The farm exudes hospitality and warmth. The staff are incredibly helpful and friendly and the rooms are very cosy! I would definitely recommend taking a walk along the dirt roads or hiking up one of the mountains. The view from the top is breathtaking!

Staying at Sunnyside Farm reminded me of staying with my grandmother when i was young. The solid wood, classic furniture in the rooms and main house, the early morning tea, afternoon tea, and good old fashioned, traditional, simple meals were wonderful. The staff are polite and helpful. Sunnyside Farm doesn't promise flashy comfort. The rooms are clean and comfortable and... More

Sunnyside Guest Farm is the perfect family get-way from the hustle & bustle of normal city life. It was definitely more then we expected. The accommodation on the farm is very basic, however the ultimate experience was awesome. The rooms were kept warm all day and all nite. Great time to bond with your loved ones. Ann and her team...

Sunnyside remains a very good value for money establishment. Cottage was very comfortable and we really appreciated the anthracite fire made in the cottage every afternoon. Staff very friendly and accomodating. Food fantastic - all homemade, and 3 course meals including wonderful array of different vegetables. Home from home, we had a very quiet and relaxing stay.

Sunnyside is in a beautiful location. The 2km dirt road to get to the farm can be hectic after a lot of rain, bit like a 'slip and slide'. It definitely is like going through a time warp though - we got to our chalet and I was a little stunned to find 3 x single beds and no shower,... More
