Pete's farm is soooo popular that I could only get a one night's stay in January. Nevertheless, I went ahead with the booking and was glad I did! The moment we arrived, we were in love with the animals and landscape surrounding the farm. We then found Pete at work in his shed shearing the sheep. Not only was he...

We stayed with Pete and Gaye at their beautiful home at the start of our holiday. Actually, we stayed in the cottage for 3 nights, which was perfect for recharging our batteries after a long flight from Manchester UK. Pete and Gaye are warm, friendly and helpful hosts and nothing is too much trouble. The sheep-shearing was fun and the...

Dear Peter & Gaye, Thank you so much for hosting us during our stay in November. You have us so many great memories and laughter during our stay. Peter is an excellent sheep shearer and farmer taking care of so many livestock. Gaye, you're such a wonderful lady. You MUST share your muffin recipe with us! Do let us know...

WOW! What a fantastic experience this was for my family. We aren't Bed & Breakfast travelers but this was not your typical experience. The quarters we stayed in had a kitchen, washer and dryer, living room, 2 beds and was positioned in the most ideal location for mountain views. The children were encouraged to spend time with the sheep even...

We're planning our next visit! My husband and I stayed in the two-bedroom cottage overlooking a beautiful flock of sheep. I can see that it would be great fun for kids, but we also found it peaceful and romantic. Coffee on the porch in the morning listening to the sheep and birds was such a treat for us city types....

We stayed at the cottage from 1st to 3rd dec. My kids absolutely loved the place- no surprise they said it is the highlight of their south Island tour with trampoline, slides and soccer! Great fun. It is also educational as Pete gave a personal guided tour with no end of stories and jokes. Gayle's lovely home made pastries -...

We stayed overnight at Pete's in their very comfortable, clean and quiet cottage. We were four adults and two small children ages 7 and 5yrs old. They arranged a shuttle for us to and from Christchurch which was very helpful. We arrived and Pete greeted us with his warm and friendly manner. The kids immediately started jumping on the trampoline...

A more welcoming couple it would be hard to meet. Nice modern rooms on a working farm. Ideal for kids with not just animals and Pete's farm tour but also a small homemade playground. Highly recommended and a shame we couldn't fit in another night....

We ended our family holiday at Pete's, staying for 3 nights in the well appointed, clean, self-contained cottage. Our children enjoyed the experience even more than us. Peter and Gaye were lovely, accommodating hosts and we would not only recommend them but will stay again on our next visit to Christchurch

On the last night of our New Zealand holiday we stayed with Pete and Gaye and had the most lovely and uplifting experience. The homestead is situated on a beautiful, open spaced farm surrounded by sheep, alpacas and mountains in the distance. Our (almost) two year old absolutely loved it. Out of our whole trip, he was happiest here... Running...
