ABOUT US

ABOUT US

We designed our home over twenty years ago, creating a haven on the family farm that I, Marie, grew up on. Penhaven sits upon 20 acres where we farm beef animals and have a  gorgeous menagerie of  pets.

Our large spray-free vegetable garden produces a variety of vegetables, and we have a selection of fruit trees providing seasonal fruits. Preserving the fruits and vegetables keeps our pantry well stocked through the seasons.

We have a true love for our land and animals, and a true respect and caring way for the environment.

“Delightful hosts and very pleasant farm surroundings. Breakfasts were amazing, and all farm produce, as was dinner, which we pre-arranged for the first night. We really enjoyed getting to know our hosts over dinner.”

Linley, New Zealand 

“Can’t speak too highly about our stay at Penhaven. Marie and Paul made us feel so welcome that we totally relaxed, something not easy for us when sharing someone else’s house. Marie’s dinner on the first night was so good we opted for another rather than a restaurant in town. Joining in with the farm activities was a highlight as were the breakfasts. The design of the house is such that unless we moved to the common areas (which was all of our waking hours) we had all the privacy that you need. Bliss!”

Steven, Australia

“So much space, so comfy and clean. Bed was good, shower and lavatory met our requirements. Hosts Marie and Paul were very kind and so helpful in anything we wanted. Breakfast was an outstanding pleasure. Local, organic and pure homemade food. Marie is very humourous and easy-going. So nice, warm and empathic. We loved our stay.”

Ole, Denmark

So interesting to chat with the hosts on their farming methods plus to meet up and close with the farm goat, deer and pig !!! Excellent stay...wish we could have stayed longer.”
