Go on a holiday with a twist, on a farm!

Booking a holiday for the family can be hard work. Knowing what is going to entertain the youngest kidlings right up to the teenyboppers is a difficult task even for the seasoned parent. Luckily, there is a new type of holiday called a farmstay. This accommodation places you on a farm to sleep, help feed the animals and enjoy life the traditional way!

If you’re looking for a place to take the whole family, including the furry friends, then Hosanna Farmstay is your perfect accommodation. You can choose to stay in a cabin with ensuite bathrooms, a hut for some luxury camping or you can pitch your own tent on their campsites. You don’t need to stress about roughing it because all accommodation includes access to the guest kitchen (with a walk-in cool room) and bathrooms. During the day, keep everyone entertained with farm tours to meet the cows, treasure hunts, kayaking on the dam or feeding the animals at the shelter. At night, light up a campfire or go on an adventure to the Glow Worm tunnel in an abandoned railway for one of nature’s most spectacular shows.
