Here at Sunnybrook Apartment we have some small farm animals for your children to enjoy - our baby pygmy goats and ducklings are popular with all ages!
To see more pictures of our friendly animals, click this link - Our Animals. These two little girls think the baby goats are adorable.
These little twin female goats were just three days old when this photo was taken - baby goats love to be held and cuddled!
Did I mention that we have a river here?
We also have a supply of fishing poles for you to use in the river.
Here is a picture of the one that didn't get away!
I'm told that this is a Carp and the river is full of them, we actually see large numbers of these fish as they congregate in the river whilst waiting to spawn in the Spring.
Personally, I am one of those people who prefer their fish on a plate with chips and a slice of lemon, or at least out of a can, but many of our visitors enjoy fishing in the river here.
In the summer of 2008 we installed a 24' swimming pool for our guests to enjoy during the hot summer months.
Visitors can swim and enjoy the lovely scenery from the pool or from the chairs on the deck.
We also have a newly installed 7-person hot-tub where our guests can relax and enjoy the outdoors all year round.
The hot-tub has a view of the meadow and the woods beyond - in the evening it is a great way to unwind and spend time with family and friends.
Our hot tub uses a wonderful new product that we found - Spa Marvel , which is great for sensetive skin, and is an enzyme based hot tub water treatment designed specifically for the spa and hot tub industry
Weather permitting, while you are here you can have a campfire and toast some hot-dogs and marshmallows.
That is a lovely activity during the early summer evenings when the Fireflies are out!
We also have a supply of beach towels, lawn chairs, coolers and a picnic basket for you to use on those relaxing days at the beach or picnics at the lake.

"Wonderful - we just spent our fifth stay at the holiday home and we enjoyed ourselves very much - a mother deer and her twin fawns strolled through the garden each morning! We'll be back!"
"My husband and I, and our teenage daughter and son, stayed at the holiday home in July 2012 and the whole family had a really nice time. The accommodation was really large, spacious, very clean and most of all there was so many extra touches to make you feel comfortable. It took me all week to read the interesting books and magazines and there was plenty of DVDs and satellite TV for entertainment. The hosts were very warm, kind and friendly and went out of their way to make sure that we were comfortable. We were so close to St. Thomas and our teenagers were able to go to Swiss Chalet for dinner. The Port Stanley Beach was awesome and an easy drive. The family had a new kitten when we arrived and we fell in love with it and all the goats and the two baby roosters were so cute. There is a lovely river view walk on the property and you can fish there. The pool and hot tub were so relaxing and I would have to say that this vacation has something to suit the needs of all age groups. We haven't stopped talking about how good it was since we came back!"
"Absolutely fantastic place to stay, every need was met. Set in acres of grounds to stroll around and view outstanding scenery, full of loads of wildlife, lovely walks nearby and plenty of beautiful parks and shops just a short drive away. I would highly recommend this holiday home for a family or couples old and young. With a hot-tub and swimming pool there is plenty to do whatever the weather. Excellent holiday with very hospitable owners.
The holiday home was just perfect and really was so well stocked with everything one would need for a stay. The property was just as you described it in your web site, even down to the deer visits and five of them graced us with a long visit on our last night. I would be happy to recommend your delightful accommodation to others!
"My family, complete with 4 children, had a fantastic and very comfortable week at Sunnybrook Farm in November 2010, and highly recommend it. It is in a peaceful country location, well away from busy roads, our hosts were kind and considerate.
"Our family had a wonderful time at Sunnybrook Farm in August 2011. We spent 9 fun-filled days; shopping in London & St. Thomas and enjoying the beautiful beach & scenic train ride in Port Stanley. In the evenings we were able to relax in the hot tub and pool...wonderful! The suite was clean and comfortable, the grounds beautiful and the hosts awesome. The goats were an added bonus, especially for our 3 year old who chased them all over the grounds. We highly recommend Sunnybrook Farm...we all had an incredible time"
"Wonderful Holiday Home! - My Mom and I wanted a short term getaway that was close to nature, peaceful, and economical. We sure found it with Sunnybrook Holiday Home in April 2012! The home was quaint and spacious with lots of extras that most getaway homes do not provide. It backed on to acres of beautiful trees and forest with a river running through it. They had an adorable hobby farm with goats and free range chickens ( I got to hold one which was really sweet!) We saw a family of deer on the property in the a.m.,and saw lots of beautiful birds. Close by they directed us to more trails where we went bird watching and discovered all kinds of wildlife! Our hosts were the most caring considerate people we have ever met when staying away from home.They even baked us fresh homemade bread of our choice, and cinnamon rolls which were delicious! While our hosts were extremely hospitable and friendly, they also provided us with the privacy we needed.After a long day of hiking on the trails we relaxed in their amazing hot tub! Highly Recommended!! We will be back in the Fall!
