  • Shane and Family, Sydney — March 2013

    Shane, Taryn, Bronte & Laura: “Dear Blair, just a quick note of thanks to you, Jacqui and your wonderful staff for the hospitality we experienced over the weekend just gone.

    We’ve done the ‘fancy’ holiday thing and invariably this seems to deliver a sanitised, contrived expereience that costs the earth, but Mowbray Park is so different in all the ways that count.

    We are pleased to say that we did almost everthing. From the trail ride to being rounded up by Dexter the Duck, from archery to tennis and everthing else in between. We felt privileged to learn about Natural Horsemanship and were genuinely moved by the ethos that so strongly shapes all that happens on the farm, from best practice environmental management and animal welfare policies to the caring family approach of management and staff to guests.

    May I single out James, Hannah and Christine who are such a credit to Mowbray Park and wonderful, sincere characters in themselves. And how could we forget Steve from the Saturday night bush dance. We haven’t had such fun in years.

    Thank you for the best short break we’ve had as a family in years. We’ll be back as soon as we can.”

     
  • Karen, Victoria — February 2013

    Karen: “We as a family thoroughly enjoyed our ‘farmstay’ weekend. My grandchildren will always remember Grandpa Dan’s 80th birthday. I would like to thank Elise for your help in booking everyone in, to our songman Steve for providing us with entertainment the whole family loved. To Hannah & James for your kindness shown at the damper site and lastly to you Blair for taking the time with my dad to listen to his stories and taking him on that guided tour! Hats off to all!!”

     
  • Lisa, Brisbane — March 2013

    Lisa: “I would just like to say thank you for such a wonderful place and great set up. My nephews, who we bought vouchers for  Christmas, have recently visited your farm and had a fabulous time. It certainly is an easy gift to give.”

     
  • David, Sydney — February 2013

    David: “Dear Blair, Jacqui, Elise, John, Hannah and all at Mowbray Park; on behalf of Ann (assistant carer) & myself I’d like to take this opportunity to thank your entire team for looking after us so brilliantly during our recent days on the farm. To a person our group were deliriously happy with all on offer and returned to their homes genuinely rested and invigorated. Something of equal importance to us is the powerful respite our little getaway affords the wonderful Carers behind the scenes who received few, if any, breaks throughout the year. We know how critically important this is and unconditionally thank you all on their behalves. We do record and measure the wellbeing of all participants both before and post camp and the results have been so positive. It looks as though we’ve been converted into a strong love of country life with your many farm animals and calming surroundings bringing rich smiles to us all. So, from every perspective, we hit gold and greatly look forward to more of the same when we’re able. Many, many thanks again”. Stayed with a special needs group.

     
  • Julie and Garry, January 2013

    Julie & Garry: “Just wanted to say A VERY BIG THANK YOU. Our daughter organised our stay for the benefit of her children, I’d have to say we all thoroughly enjoyed every moment, kids loved the experience and learnt so much on so many levels. We especially want to mention Sharon, her wonderful, relaxed, informed, enthusiastic, genuine manner was so appreciated, she was amazing with the children. So once again, thank you to all at Mowbray Park”.

     
  • Lyn and David, Newcastle — November 2012

    Lyn & David: “Many thanks for the wonderful weekend our family had last weekend. Your care & attention to them all is much appreciated. We had a wonderful celebration.”

     
  • Linda and Tas, Canberra, September 2012

    Linda, Tas, Tomas & Anthony: “Thanks for a great 3 nights. We had a lovely time in the Chapel and Tomas & Anthony had so much fun feeding the animals and the pony rides. Just when we thought it couldn’t possibly get any better, Blair you made it even more awesome for them when you gave them a ride on the quadbike! We will be highly recommending to all our friends. xxxx”

     
  • Bella, Sydney — August 2012

    From Bella: “I hope the baby goat that was born is okay (!!!) and thank you for letting us feed lots of your animals at your farm and ride on your horses. It was a lot of fun. And I loved having the tractor rides and getting to pat the animals. And when the cow did a poo it was so funny! And I really liked the spa, it was so nice and relaxing. And I loved the damper and marshmallows.”

     
  • Daniel, Sydney — August 2012

    From Daniel:  “I liked milking the cow and I liked making the damper and the marshmallows. I liked the tractor ride and the spa and also the canoe ride. I liked playing with the baby rabbits and swinging on the tyre. Thank you for sending me the baby piglet photo. I liked feeding the baby animals.”
