The Berry Farm Retreat
My Mother and I stayed at this lovely little spot. It lives up to it's name and is a tranquil spot to unwind and relax but still close enough to Hastings to stock up on supplies and visit tourist spots. The Hosts Di and Matthew were wonderful and nothing was too much trouble. Their local knowledge meant we were able to sample all the local delights on our trip. Among our highlights were the melt in your mouth raspberries, the visits from all the birdlife and Snowy the Goat. We would definitely recommend and also return again in the Future.
