An amazing property with heaps of character and history. Location is stunning and very peaceful. It’s very unique for NZ and is worth making the effort to stay. The owners hospitality was excellent with a cup of tea and cake on arrival and a great cooked breakfast the following morning. The area is full of things to see and there’s a great pub a short drive with good food and an amazing sunset.
Jacqui and Alastair were very warm and welcoming host. We had a great welcome, chat and one the best views along with most beautifully set breakfast table. Farm animals and the garden was just a great added delight. it is great value for money. Tranquil, fresh air and amazing host. Couldn't have asked for more. I am recommending all my friends to go there now.
