We had such a great time at Dusodie Holiday Farm this weekend. There was so much to explore, the kids loved feeding the animals, collecting the eggs and picking fruit off the trees. The river was spectacular and we had so much fun in the row boat. We loved waking up to the birds and cows mooing and Xena the dog was such a hit with the kids. The cottage was perfect for our two families and was toasty warm with the fire. The outdoor fire was great for roasting marshmallows and relaxing. A great place to get away to, we will definitely be back. We also did a lovely walk to Jerusalem Falls which was recommended by Jenni. Thanks for letting us share your little bit of paradise Jenni and Phil and for a few days and being such awesome hosts.

You have made me so happy and I will always remember the fun times at the farm and the creek with you. I will never forget the memories that have been and will come because it is a memory that will last forever. PS: I never want to leave. PPS: If you ever need help around the farm I am here. From Olivia
I am so grateful. I cant stop smiling!! This is my home away from home. I really enjoy spending time with you, Phil and the animals!! Since the first time I came here (2014), I came home crying, not wanting to leave, and that has happened every time since then!! I have always thought of you as my Auntie. I will always remember the wonderful memories of the days at the farm and spending time with you. I am always happy to be your regulars!! Georgia

What a fantastic time we had! We stayed here for 7 nights and enjoyed all of the benefits of a wonderful and activity filled family holiday. We stayed in the cabin with our two children (6 years and 9 years). We used the BBQ often and the outdoor fire pit every night. The cabin is extremely well equipped and very comfortable. We collected eggs, fed the goats ,sheep, cattle, horse, chickens, turkeys, guinea foul, and guinea pigs. We regularly had the company of Phill and Jenni's beautiful dog, Xena, especially whenever we went for a swim or play by the creek. We tried yabbie trapping for the first time and were pleased that alll of us held them. With all of the fun the property provides, we were kept busy and very content the whole week and never got bored. We even checked out the town of Dungog, which was lovely despite the information centre being more like a lack-of-information-centre. Honestly, we got much more success with information of things to see and do from Jenni and Phill (who even drew us up a mud map) than the vague possible ideas but not so sure dottiness of the information centre people. We explored in the Barrington Tops National Park and saw the Dam. I can't thank Jenni and Phill enough for the wonders of their hospitality and everything they do for people who visit. It takes a very kind person to unite families so well.

Wow what a fab place to go with kids.. We had 5 kids from 7 to 13 on arrival all electronics were confiscated and not missed to be honest. so much to do and experience. Explore the farm, river and feed the animals. Bonfire at night with singalongs and toasting marshmallows. The country sounds blended perfectly with the rolling hills and gorgeous sunsets. Will be visiting again.. many thanks to Jen and the girls for your hospitality and welcoming smiles.. thank you again xx

I had the pleasure of clebrating the new year 2015 here at the Dusodie Holiday Farm with my family! We came here with my mum, dad, brothers and me!!! It was absolutely amazing. Jenni was such a great host and really made our family feel welcome. My baby brother loved every minute of the experience and my parents have not stopped talking about it since our return. We cant wait to come back for another break away from home.. By the way we Miss MEEERA :) She was a personal tour guide the whole trip!

We would agree with all the previous comments. Peaceful, fun, educational, safe and incredible value. The cabin was warm, well equipped and picturesque. It was delughtful watching the birds in the morning and my 19 month squeeled with joy when feeding the animals and petting the cows. It was the perfect weekend for Mum and toddler.

We stayed for the June long weekend and had a ball. Two families with 4 girls aged 8-13 yrs. Each morning the kids were up early and outside in the fresh air. They loved the farm animals and yabbying in the dam. We all enjoyed the outdoor fire and the relaxing atmosphere. We'll be back.

My partner and I chose Dusodie for our one year Anniversary! It was romantic, cuddling by the outdoor fire; fun feeding and snuggling all the gorgeous animals (baby guinea pigs were the highlight!); peaceful strolling along the creek and paddling around in the canoe; relaxing while sitting in a chair enjoying a beer overlooking the cow dotted hills. Jenni was so lovely and hospitable, informative and patient with our little one? THANK YOU, WE WILL BE BACK xx

We had such a wonderful weekend! It was Shelley's (1 yrs old) first holiday since she has started walking and I've never seen her so excited to get her shoes on and out the door every morning! Jenny was so welcoming and we absolutely loved feeding the animals every day. We can't thank you enough for the experience you gave us particularly Shelley who loved everything especially the goats and the bunnies (even if she tried eating their carrots). Thank you for a lovely farm stay experience.
