Beautiful location and cottage has everything that you could ask for and more. Everything was exceptionally clean, tidy and comfortable. We really appreciated being able to bring our puppy. We would certainly recommend. Thanks!

Amazing hospitality - first time staying in the main house (have stayed in the lodge a few times before) and Donna and Rex went out of their way to cater for us and my wife's parents. Rooms were fantastic and felt brand new. Breakfast on the deck was perfect. Alpacas were friendly and personality filled as usual. Just a great...

We're always on the lookout for quality dog friendly accommodation and this place was such a great find. The guest house is well maintained and generously stocked, would definitely recommend a bbq on the deck. We met and fed the Alpacas - really friendly and full of personality! As is Jack the farmstay labradoodle, who our Samoyed loved playing with!...

We recently stayed 3 nights at the Bellbird Ridge Alpaca B&B Farmstay and absolutely loved it. Rex and Donna were great hosts and were SUPER helpful. It is such a peaceful tranquil spot and not far from Taupo at all (about 10 minutes) - we were so happy that we stayed there rather than in town. We stayed in the...

We stayed here for a night, and the hosts were very helpful (calling tours for us, etc.), were lovely to chat with, and provided some nice treats as it was our honeymoon. We spent some quality time with the animals the next morning, and loved the tranquility of the farm. The whole place was very well taken care of.

Away from the bustle of Taupo, Bellbird Ridge is surrounded by beautiful countryside. We stayed in the cottage which is self contained,private and overlooks the beautiful garden. It's very well appointed for self catering and there is also a BBQ which we used one evening to grill steaks to entertain some friends staying in a nearby accommodation. All ingredients for...
