"Murphy's Farmhouse is so called because it is a huge old farmhouse that has been converted into a B&B with loads of rooms. The rooms are comfortable with showers ensuite. The menu for breakfast was vast as were the delicious breakfasts themselves."
"When we first pulled up to this beautiful, large farmhouse, we saw a big bus in front of it and thought we had no chance of getting the 3 rooms we needed, but decided to ask anyway. We were so thrilled that they had 3 ensuite rooms available for the 6 of us. Mrs. Murphy gave us tea and cookies right away. We were so excited later that evening when her adult son let us watch him put the cows and bull up for the evening and showed us where they were milked twice a day and told us interesting stories about the cows. We all slept well and appreciated that each room had so many extras. The breakfast was great! We loved staying here and have decided that farmhouse B&B's are the best!"
