In our commitment to keep you and our staff safe and healthy, we are introducing new technologies, training and protocols to guarantee safe guest and working environments throughout our operation – from our farm and kitchen to your table and bed. There is a safe distance between our separate accommodation units (Wild Olive House, Heron House and the Farmhouse) which allows you to safely isolate in the privacy of your unit. Guests staying at the main Farmhouse have exclusive access to the Farmhouse. No day visitors, nor guests staying at Wild Olive or Heron House, are allowed access to the Farmhouse.

Turn-down has been suspended, and all reading materials have been removed from the rooms.
