“Excellent Farmstay”
Reviewed 10 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

We have stayed in many places in the world and Milk and Honey cottage really attracted us is the country side horse riding. My son love horse riding. Lucy Megan's daughter is an excellent horse trainer and my son thoroughly enjoyed riding with her twice. Cost NZ$50 for each 1 hour Ride. I learned from the Farmstay tour they have over 2500 acres of land we were taken to the top of the Hill and was overwhelmed with the beautiful view. Their jersey cows were great first time was so near so many cows. Megan's home cooking was excellent we all enjoyed the lunch and dinner. Both my kids enjoyed their pup Lab and their other dogs. Unfortunately the trip was too short we did not have time to go fishing, walking in the hills and bicycling. We would certainly come back again. You can call Megan any time to book their cottage 64 6385 4366 or email to her at e.riverbendwards@gmail.com. Be sure to call or email to Meagan she will give you very detailed instructions how to get to her place and you must book in advance for the Dinner. Must get there by 5pm hard to find during night time.

“If we could live here, we would”
Reviewed 5 March 2017 for a stay in February 2017

Milk and Honey cottage is one of those rare places that you are just lucky enough to happen upon, and wonder how you got so lucky. My husband and I stayed two nights at Meagan and John's slice of paradise, but we could have easily stayed much longer. They run a busy cattle and sheep farm, and it is a delight to be amongst the hustle and bustle of a working farm, but the hosts were never too busy to see if we needed anything or to answer our hundreds of questions. One of the friendliest and most generous families that we have stayed with, it almost feels like you are visiting friends. Their breath-taking property is expansive and heavenly, any direction you look, you'll see snow covered mountains, rolling green hills, peaceful grazing sheep and cows, and crystal clear rivers. The self-contained cottage is cozy, clean and well equipped, with fantastic views out of any window. The back patio is very peaceful and a great spot for watching a glorious sunset or star-gazing on a clear night. We hiked a bit around their property, fished in their river and wished we'd had more time for exploring. It was within easy driving distance to Tongariro National Park and other site seeing adventures. It is just a little off the beaten path and the drive up to the farm has some incredible views. We loved our time at Milk and Honey Cottage and would love to go back one day. P.S. Meagan is a great cook! Be sure to order one of her farm-to-table meals while you are here! They also sell incredible, rich honey (which made great gifts to bring back to family)

“Heaven”
Reviewed 8 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

My husband and I have lived in 19 countries, visited 106 in the world and this small cottage on a working farm takes a lot of beating! With stunning views, rivers, valleys and mountains we found a little piece of heaven. Meagan and John are the ultimate hosts, giving us inside info on fishing, and taking us to,secluded spots in the bush on their property. If you wish to get away from it all and have peace and tranquility this charming cottage is the place to go. Just wonderful.

Reviewed 16 January 2017 for a stay in January 2017

A great find! Off the beaten track farmstay with welcoming hosts who were willing to share this part of their world with us. Beautiful views of the valley. Highly recommend you order your dinner from Meagan - delicious food.

“Beautiful farmstay”
Reviewed 1 December 2016 for a stay in November 2016

Such a lovely place to stay. Off the beaten track and well worth the drive. The cottage is nice & very comfortable. Meagan & John were amazing hosts. They are extremely helpful in terms of information & things to do & made the most delicious meals & chocolate cake (which was enjoyed sitting at the outside table with a stunning view over their farm). We loved exploring their beautiful farm, particularly the river and the walk up the hill with views of Mt Ruapehu, encountering a few wild deer on the way. Thank you for your wonderful hospitality!
