I totally agree with the other negative reviews. In addition to what has been written by others, the owner gave me the creeps, and was so enthralled with his own dogma (in his book, "Eve's Secret"--which was given to us within minutes of arrival, and was so offensive and poorly written--especially, but not limited to, the chapter about what women should do to have a better sex life) that he missed the whole point of what we were interested in (which was the organic garden). A major warning: If you are offered reiki by the owner and the female manager, do NOT do it. It is not reiki; it is pure crap! It was, I was told, their "own version" of reiki. Really uncomfortable (crystals, chanting of "ohm" and touching---all not part of reiki). I was so happy to get out of this place! (Food was good, but not worth all the rest of the creepiness!)

McCleod Farm is NOTHING like the web page. It's completely run down and lacked the basic necessities, such as coffee!
I felt the place had a very creepy vibe, originating from author and owner Mark Cunningham. He wrote a book called "Eve's secret" from a message he was given from Mother Earth to help liberate women!!! I only discovered this AFTER my stay on the farm.
In my opinion no man should write a book on "liberating" women!
There were so many young overseas travellers looking to extend their visas who worked on the farm for nothing and I also felt this was suspect. I would not return and obviously I don't recommend it.

We stayed at McLeod Eco Farm for a week and found the location to be first class.

Sadly the rooms were not kept clean. When we asked them if we could borrow the vacuum cleaner they were very obliging, but they didn't get the hint and clean the place themselves. Some of the dust and cobwebs looked as if it had been there for years. Our son couldn't use one bedroom because the ambient dust effected his hay fever too much.

Room Tip: Be more brave than we were, insist that they clean it properly.

Extremely poor value for money in a very run down facility.
The brochures and website are nothing like the reality.
