A little spot of heaven fell from out the sky one day and landed at Muddy Creek Cutting. What a marvellous B and B. Very rustic mud brick farmhouse surrounded by glorious flowers. These are the inspiration for artist/host Ross' silk-screened linens, including tea towels for purchase. Owner/host Kevin is a master chef. He produces gourmet meals of slow-cooked lamb, smoked fish, roasted peacock, braised duck, and a vegetarian banquet with his own home made ewes milk cheese. Desserts are out of this world. But remember, you must order ahead if you plan to eat here. Everything is prepared to order from their own garden abd animals . Breakfasts include fresh eggs and home made preserves and honey. This 10 acre property backs onto the famous Central Otago Cycling trail, but there are many lovely walks in the area. Do not miss it. You will be glad you came here.

After battling 50kmh headwinds all day it was initially a sense of relief to arrive at Muddy Creek Cutting B&B. This was followed by the wow factor. The cottage is immaculate & very comfortable, the fire was going, the shower had plenty of hot water & heated flooring. Kevin served up a delicious lamb meal with home grown veggies. Followed by an amazing berry, meringue & cream dessert which was demolished. A warm and comfy sleep. We woke to find it snowing - just amazing. And a lovely breakfast to get set for the day. Thank you Kevin & Ross - highly recommended

For modest rates this is superb accomodation. Unless you are on the trail Lauder is not the biggest drawcard, but this place is well worth a detour. I checked in late for a single night and left early on a work trip, but will earmark this as a destination and would recommend to anyone who will lend an ear. I only met one of the hosts, who was extremely personable and accomodating. Cosy, quiet, peaceful, relaxing all come to mind as you are shown through, the garden is a rambling edible marvel, I only regret I did not choose the option of a dinner, the fare is local (ie. grown on the property) and options galore. I read pheasant on the menu which made me curious and then actually saw the peahean and her chick on the driveway as I left (poor tasty things lol).The building is old and rustic in lovely way and remains extremely clean, and warm with two fires and water bottles. Tasteful art by the hosts and vibrant (and comfortable) beds add to the charm. The only drawback I can think of is that while the bathroom is well appointed and finished superbly, the water pressure is lacking and slow to adjust. Conclusion: This is my new getaway from the city.

A great spot on the rail trail. Organically sourced food off the property. Fantastic food served by Kevin that was worth every cent after a long day in the saddle. Only thing to be aware of - you need to call in advance if you are planning on having a meal here as they won't cook for you at your request on the spot. Overall we were happy with our stay but take cash as the internet connection isn't the best. They don't take credit card. Things to comment on- towels probably need upgrading. They seem quite old and some did smell a little. Not sure there is a lot of flexibility to order straight off the menu on the night - we asked for a platter for a starter as we were hungry but told there wasn't enough time. Great hospitality however but after our dessert we were asked to clean the dishes. A little strange after spending so much on our meals. Overall a 3/5.

Really attractive B&B run by two gentlemen (we only met one of them) with a flair for art and horticulture. The garden is beautiful. The open fire, a treat on a cold day. Beds are comfy and warm. The old house is clean and tidy. The only box not ticked was the breakfast. In the morning there was a do it yourself tray waiting on the table with half a dozen eggs to cook, unset jam, half a loaf of brown bread, mix it yourself type yogurt and a jar of cereal. For six cyclists hoping to get on the road and start pedaling without too much fuss, this was not ideal. We ended up poaching eggs in a bowl in the microwave and deciding to drop into the next cafe we cycled past for coffee. Given the rest of the set up, it was a surprise how lackadaisical the second "B" at the Muddy Creek B&B turned out to be.
