  • We thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay

    We thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay. The place was kept tidy and had a great traditional but modern feel to it. The highlight was coming back to a relaxing hot spa each night while watching the sheep in the neighbouring paddock.

  • We had a lovely stay and would recommend it to anyone...

    We had a lovely stay and would recommend it to anyone. We loved the homely feeling and the accomodation was clean, homely and neat. What a wonderful farm experience.

  • Comfortable cottage with heaps of character and a really nice rural aspect

    Comfortable cottage with heaps of character and a really nice rural aspect. The lack of a sink took a bit of getting used to (you can leave your dishes out for the hosts to put through their dishwasher), but the spa pool was really appreciated at the end of a long day. The breakfast stuff was a good bonus, and the bed was very comfortable.

  • Nice bathroom

    Nice bathroom. Nice area of New Zealand. Just a short distance from her are some great scenic areas of farmland that don't have the typical signs of man that a lot of the North Island has.

  • Lovely relaxing stay with spa and surprise breakfast

    Lovely relaxing stay with spa and surprise breakfast. Didn't realise there was no kitchen sink or cooker on the plus side though meant I didn't need to wash dishes.
