Fig Tree Farm Cottage

Fig Tree Farm Cottage B&B is located just minutes from popular Samford Village.

Come and join us at our interactive hobby farm on over 5 beautiful acres. It is the perfect place for a romantic getaway or families to bring their children to run around in the fresh air, bottle feed lambs, collect freshly laid eggs for breakfast, hand feed guinea pigs and brush friendly goats! (Recommended age 3yrs+)

The booking includes the entire cottage, including 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The cottage is double glazed, fully air conditioned with heating and cooling and boasts a full sized kitchen and large fridge/freezer, laundry and dishwasher. There is even Netflix and complementary Wi-Fi! The cottage has a king bed and en-suite in the master bedroom. There are 4 single beds, between two further bedrooms, for your convenience! We comfortably sleep 6 guests. However, we can provide an additional ‘pop up’ bed for a 7th guest (recommended for children). Contact us for this option.

Due to current covid restrictions, all people entering the property need to be listed  on the booking. Unfortunately we have had to stop guests welcoming day visitors who stay for a few hours and raise the risk of exposure.

Check in 2pm & Check out 10am.

A personalised country breakfast basket is awaiting your arrival.  Wake up to the smell of freshly baked bread in the cottage! We help you set up the bread maker at night for your convenience. Collect your own free range eggs directly from the chicken coop and cook the fresh eggs to your taste. We also provide fresh seasonal fruit, butter, cereal and condiments in the basket! For stays of over three nights we refresh any further items you may need. Samford boasts an excellent IGA, called Drakes, for you to purchase addition shopping for any other food you may need.

Explore the seasonal creek (located at the bottom of the property), play with one of the many games provided like the cricket set or swing tennis.  Challenge each other with a board game or a round of mini golf on our 5 hole mini golf course! You could go into nearby Samford Village and enjoy a coffee, ice-cream or cake. If you are a Harry Potter fan visit the shop called ‘The Store Of Requirement’ in Samford village. Why not take a hike at one of the nearby nature trails and get some fresh air in the beautiful surroundings. Or enjoy the simplicity of the swings at John Scott Park in Samford village. You can even meet and hand feed a deer at the Lyell Deer Sanctuary, located nearby!

In the afternoon relax and unwind with a drink on the patio, or watch their delight as the children make s’mores over the open firepit, all while overlooking the spectacular mountain views, playful goats and lambs.

There is so much to do to keep adults and children alike entertained!

Bottle feed the lambs!

We have two little Dorper lambs called Barley and Suzie. They joined the family in June, 2021 and will be bottle fed until about November 2021! Guests are welcome to help with the bottle feeds, play with the lambs and brush them.  Next lambing season, in 2022, we will get 2 more lambs to join our family. The animals on our hobby farm are never sold on when they grow up and become big animals. They are all very friendly due to so much interaction and they are a valued part of our farm, even when they are adults. 

Friendly Goats

Family friendly Goats, Chickens, Guinea Pigs, & bottle fed lambs!

At Fig Tree Farm Cottage B&B we have four friendly goats called Sam, Jack, Wally and Casper (two are hornless pygmy goats), two friendly bottle fed lambs called Barley and Suzie, thirteen free range chickens and and chicks on the way. We also have four guinea pigs called Elsa, Trixie, Coco and Levi for guests to interact with. ‘Guinea Pig Encounters’ are introduced by the host for the safety of the guinea pigs and the enjoyment of the guests!

Brushing goats

Brush and hand feed the Goats!

The goats enjoy being brushed daily and brushes are supplied for guests! Children are even able to brush the goats as they are so friendly and love the attention. We provide guests with a bag of goat food so they can feed the goats anytime. Of course children must always be supervised by an adult.

 

Unfortunately, we are unable to allow guests to bring their own dogs as we have little animals to protect at Fig Tree Farm.

Guinea Pigs

Guinea Pig Cuddles!

We have 4 resident guinea pigs called Trixie, Elsa, Coco and Levi.  We provide supervised guinea pig encounters where children (or adults!) can pat and hand feed the guinea pigs with food we supply. The guinea pigs are bought to the cottage in a secure basket which ensures they stay safe while you have an awesome hands on experience.

Hand feed chickens

Hand feed the chickens and collect fresh farm eggs for your breakfast!

The Fig Tree Farm ‘Chick Inn’ has thirteen happy free range chickens. They all have names and have a great area to roam free and produce healthy farm fresh eggs. Guests can hand feed the chickens or use the basket and collect the eggs to cook for yourself in the morning! There is a seat in the Chick Inn so you can sit and relax while watching the happy chickens scratching around in their outdoor area. We sometimes even hatch our own eggs and have chicks at the farm!

 

Kites

Games activities and toys!

There are many inside and outdoor games in the cottage such as monopoly, bowling,  a cricket set, swing tennis, card games, Yahtzee, a kite and much more.  We have a 5 hole mini golf course, putters, balls and score cards too! There are also boxes of toys such as a train set, Lego, a tea set, a castle building set, dinosaurs and a big box of cars, to name a few.

Read one of our many reviews.

I think the words ‘super host’ are used too liberally but I can honestly say from staying in air B and Bs in 5 continents around the world, Mike and Lydia, are by far the best hosts I’ve experienced. Fig Tree Farm Cottage is a beautifully designed, high specification, thoroughly clean, 3 bedroom house with a fantastic outlook. Fresh breakfast is provided daily by Lydia. The German rye bread was enjoyed by both our young children. The daily cuddles with the guinea pigs and brushing of the goats was a real highlight, as was the creek at the end of the acreage. We have already booked in for another week.
