5/5 Excellent

Peaceful hideaway
Great place to stay to get away from it all, great friendly hosts, everything you need is there, but still close to town if you want it. Friendly dogs, cattle chooks etc too!

5/5 Excellent

Life on a working farm
A lovely rural setting yet so close to town. Sheep, lambs, kunekune and ten crazy hens right at the doorstep was a delight. Lots of room in the shearer’s quarters with a lovely fifties rustic style kitchen. Friendly hosts made for a great stay.
