    Michelle and Garth's farm is very remote and quiet but only a short drive away from Hokitika. Adorable farm animals, lovely big room, scrumptious homemade breakfast and clean bathroom. Definitely visit the Glow Worm Dell after dark on SH6 and enjoy a meal at the Beachfront Hotel Oceanview restaurant.

    The property is close to hokitika if you have a car- lovey spot, a really NZ experience. The room we stayed in was really large and comfortable and had everything a family could want in terms of toys, books and breakfast and comfy beds!

    Good location in the countryside near Hokitika, a convenient base to explore the surroundings and the glaciers. Big room perfect for families, with a large private bathroom on the same floor. No kitchen but all the essentials for breakfast provided, including deliciously fresh products from the farm.
