Comments from international travel writers:

Vogue living: "Don't leave without a visit to the actual museum that occupies the ground floor. The beautiful, creative displays are part museum and part art installation, taking visitors through the history and lore of the area as well as exploring what life was like for the farmers who used to live on the property. It is unquestionably worth your time,"   Virginia Van Zanten editor.

Lonely Planet Guide: "This brilliant new attraction defies easy classification. It's a remote farm that offers museum exhibits,unique accommodation, local food, horse riding and hiking trails,and the opportunity for tailor-made tours. The historic exhibits here were designed by the farm's owners (a film director and a historian) so are of superb quality– as is the entire farm concept."
