  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We were very comfortable and enjoyed both the luxurious accommodation and the proximity to Cape Palliser and Martinborough. Lovely cooked breakfast, easily accommodating our vegetarian request. Thank you both.

  • Fantastic couple of days here

    Fantastic couple of days here. We really enjoyed the house with its roaring fire and afternoon tea/cooked breakfasts. What a treat! We loved exploring the property too and visiting the animals. Jacqui & Alistair are wonderful hosts.
