    This is a really unique, rustic setting with great mountain views and within an easy drive of Kaikoura. It is great for kids , with morning and afternoon feedings of the animals part of the unique features of the site. The railway carriage has an enclosed lawn for children and dogs to play. It also has two separate bedrooms (including a double bunk), plus a compact kitchen and lounge, all loving restored to retain its 19th Century character. I totally recommend this quirky, comfortable retreat.

  • The train carriage is amazing

    The train carriage is amazing. A truly amazing fit-out (George Clarke should really pay a visit!) The attention to detail is very impressive (and it was beautifully clean). We absolutely loved our stay and would like to have stayed longer. The farm park is just a short drive from Kaikoura township along a quiet country road. The farm park really added to the experience for our kids. We felt warmly welcomed as guests. Highly recommend!
