If you like being up close and personal with animals this is the place to be. Friendly staff and I am sure the animals will talk to you Just the place for a great time to explore and talk to the fold who live there

I have been to Stoney Oaks several times with and without children - enjoyed every visit as there is always something new to see. A great variety of the friendliest animals you will ever meet in a pleasant country setting.

I stumbled across Stoney Oaks quite by chance and made a booking for two nights at the Barn. Even then I didn't really know what to expect. It was a completely unique experience for us "townies". Effectively you stay right in the midsts of an...More
