    Hi Elaine & Ken,

    Hope you’re both well and enjoyed your time in Europe with your family.

    We have been meaning to leave this review for ages; apologies – here it is.

    We stayed at Barcoos Barn in the winter school holidays 2018. It’s now summer holidays and the kids are still raving on about their experiences. Thanks for a great experience; Elaine & Ken were wonderful hosts, giving the children so many enjoyable and eye-opening experiences about farm life and farm animals. We loved the fresh bread and eggs for breakfast. We can’t recommend this place highly enough.

    Best wishes and warmest regards,

    The Selby family

    Dear Elaine and Ken,

    Thank you for the wonderful stay at Barcoos earlier this month. The kids are still talking about the fantastic animal experiences. Even the wet weather did not detract from our time at your farm ( or your hospitality). I would recommend this stay to any families , it is well worth the drive.

    Merry Christmas

    Thank you Elaine and Ken for a wonderful weekend on the farm.
    My six year old city kid thought it was the best: feeding chickens, collecting eggs, pony rides.
    Friends had raved about Barcoos so I had very high expectations and they were well and truly exceeded.
    You are so generous with your time and you obviously love your animals.
    We will see you again for sure.
    Many thanks
    Emily and Ada

    Hello Elaine and Ken,
    Thank you very much once again for your wonderful hospitality during our stay for 12 nights recently. Thank you also Ken for transporting us to and from Mount Panorama during the few days of the Bathurst 1000 race. We had a thoroughly enjoyable stay in our caravan once again and can’t wait to return to Barcoos Barn Farmstay. Give all the animals a great big pat for us – they are all beautiful.
    Best wishes to you both.
    Cheers, Meryl and Sauli Kotkamaa

    Dear Farmer Ken & Farmer Elaine

    Thanks again for the wonderful 3 days at your fun, beautiful and busy farm!

    We all enjoyed ourselves, it was great fun, from family time feeding the lambs to dad getting a sleep in. You are both very kind and happy people which is rare these days. Ethan was very happy to name a baby lamb and our little girl now wants a pony as she loved riding hunter. We felt very welcome and will be back! The Hillview House was perfect and just what we needed for a farm get away! We loved all the animals and could not pick one favorute!
    Best wishes

    Dear Elaine and Ken,

    Thanks so much for such a wonderful time last weekend. Despite the initial hesitations, our kids got right into all your farm activities at the end. It was great to see how much they all enjoyed it. Wayne and I also enjoyed participating and getting to see a slice of farm life. We will be coming again real soon! It’s a promise! Lots of love to Georgie, Ruby, Cody, Prudence, Zara and all the other animals!! From The Varndells x
