    Jackie and Alastair's place is truly one of a kind! It was great to have our own wing of the house with our own sitting area as well where we were served a delicious breakfast by Jackie. We really enjoyed chatting with Jackie, as well as the beautiful scenery in the area.

  • This is the second time we've stayed at Whangimoana, the first time...

    This is the second time we've stayed at Whangimoana, the first time in the cottage (cosy, quiet and well kitted out) this time in the East wing of the main house. The property has a lovely feel to it with large rooms and high ceilings along with a roaring fire. We stayed with a young baby and it was a great to take the baby to see all the animals on the property each day. Eacy day we had a lovely cooked breakfast and cake for afternoon tea. No doubt we will stay again at sometime in the future.
