Raglan Farmstay !!!!

 Location was fantastic - close to Raglan. Views from the deck were amazing and sitting on the deck watching the sunset was a highlight for us all. Spa pool was enjoyed by all - especially the younger ones. Only comment would be, though it is up to quests to clean up after themselves, maybe the team could do a quick once over if it isn't up to standard.
