Booking Conditions




The property is self-contained.  As such, it is expected that all rooms, carpets, windows, doors, fridge, oven etc., are left in a clean and tidy state and undamaged.  We do our absolute best, to provide you with a spotless cottage on arrival. 

We appreciate your assistance and respect with these conditions, so we can offer the same level of cleanliness, to the guests who may be arriving after you. 


Guests are to ensure dishes are washed, dried and put away and rubbish is taken to the outside bins.


Please do not shift the furniture.

Charges will be at cost for repairs and per hour, for additional cleaning that may be required, by not leaving the cottages the way you found them as above.

We do allow small pets to stay at the accommodation, if prior consent is obtained.  Please discuss before booking.


DO NOT feed the donkeys.  They have a very simple diet and put on weight very easily, this in turn leads to obesity and foot problems. They may also easily nip your fingers by mistake.  Fingers and carrots look very similar to a donkey!

Children MUST be supervised by an adult at all times!  That means, please do not allow your child/children, to be in a paddock with a donkey, without adult supervision at all times.  The donkeys are very friendly, but ensuring your children remain safe at all times, means being present to supervise them.


Dogs must be kept away from the donkeys.  Donkeys are used to protecting their herds from wild dogs.  It is their instinct to protect themselves and our donkeys may see your pet as a threat.  Owner responsibility is required to ensure your animal remains unharmed and so are our donkeys.

Because you are visiting a farm with livestock and natural bush land, it is a condition of your reservation, that all activities undertaken at Donkey Tales Farm Cottages are done entirely at your own risk .  Donkey Tales Farm Cottages and its owners, accept no liability for injury, death or illness, loss or damage whilst visiting the property.



Your safety is our foremost concern!


An email or text message, will be sent on the morning of your arrival.  It will provide directions to the property and a security code for the key safe at your cottage.
