We just flew into Christchurch and needed some much needed time to recuperate and adjust to the time. The farm was a great stopover to rejuvenate. It was a short drive away from the airport. The cottage we stayed in was clean and spacious. It was away from the main house where Pete and his wife lived in so that...

Stayed here with the family at the start of our tour of NZ. Accommodation modern clean comfortable and a good size for our family of two adult and three children. The farm tour was interesting and something the kids loved, especially feeding the alpacas! Breakfast is also good.

Thanks so much for your great review. Pete and I are glad that you had such a great time. It was a pleasure to meet you all and we hope to see you all again real soon. New Zealand is such a lovely country especially the south island that you could come back every year and still not see everything.

Away from the City surrounded by sheep and alpaca with a comfy bed and a cup tea in the morning, what could be better? Oh the morning demonstration of sheep shearing, feeding the alpaca, and buying woll products from the shop. Excellent, friendly hosts. And a real sheep dog.

We spent the last night of our 14-day trip around the south island and it was a perfect ending. The kids loved the animals, Pete the sheep dog, the sheep, the lamb, the alpacas. The cottage is spacious and we finally could spread out all our stuff and repackage for the flight home. The breakfast was wonderful and muffins delicious....

Kids enjoyed. We spend 2 nights there. The kids went with Pete everytime Pete showed new people around. They enjoyed the animals as well as the trampoline too. As said in many reviews- fantastic hospitality from both Pete and Gayle. Can see the passion and love from both of them for their farm and their house! Thanks again to pete...
