    This Country Homestead at Black Sheep Farm is an excellent place to stay, only one minutes drive from The Cove restaurant and Waipu Beach. It was quiet, peaceful and beautiful. We loved it and will be returning.

  • The property is beautiful with wonderful views

    The property is beautiful with wonderful views. The location, outside of Auckland, was perfect for us to explore the Northland area. We feel lucky for all the wonderful memories we have from our stay at Country Homestead.

  • Loved the whole family

    Loved the whole family. The home made croissant and pain au chocolat were that of a Master Chef. Listening to one of the daughter playing the piano was a delight. The homestead felt like living in a Palace and we enjoyed the animals. Many different outdoor areas to play, bask in the sun or relax on a nice wooden terrace under the trees.
