Tea & coffee available 24/7 in fully equipped Hub where complete self catering is available or you can choose to eat with other Astrofarm guests. Our meals are freshly prepared from home grown and local products.
Astrofarm can also provide a lunch of homemade soup and bread in the winter, or cheese, meats and pâté in the summer. We can also offer a delicious 2 course ‘Plat de Jour’ dinner with wine each evening (extra charges apply).
The Hub, open 24/7, is a comfortable communal area, with table seating for 10 guests. During the warmer months, the outside veranda is a delightful social area for eating, chatting and drinking with a barbecue facility and plentiful seating.
With a log burner in winter, this cosy room provides a comfortable space to relax where visitors can enjoy an extensive library, games, comfy chairs and TV and DVD player and is equipped with computer and laptops with internet access.
Other than our small apartment in the middle of the site, guests have access to all areas of Astrofarm including the gardens and the land.
Interaction with guests
Andrew and Sue are around all day and evening, other than a couple of hours down time during the afternoons. Andrew will open the observatory in the evening for those guests who have booked the astronomy package and we will serve a communal dinner in the evening to those guests who wish to eat with the group. Guests can share social time, meals and evenings with other guests or take time out for themselves. You are free to come and go as you wish as we are open all the time.
We do a supermarket run every morning so if you wish to self cater you can buy your own food and we can help with the language if you are not confident with speaking French. We are more than happy to help at any time - you only need to ask!
Other things to note
We do have very gentle, quiet cats, dogs and chickens and although they are NOT allowed in guest areas, we cannot guarantee allergy free living!
Because we have livestock we do not allow guests to bring pets.
The bunkhouse is a quiet zone and we ask that you respect the peace and quiet on the farm at all times. This is an adult only B&B so that we can provide a restful and relaxing stay for all our guests.
Whilst we welcome groups, we do not cater for stag/hen weekends or family groups (when booking whole bunkhouse) with children under 14.
Smoking is allowed only in the designated shelter. Smoking is strictly prohibited in all indoor areas, outdoor eating areas and around the land.
