Russell and Dianne don't offer the usual experience. This is a working farm with terrific hosts and food, a wonderful setting and hospitality and a room that is an A. Dianne is a master cook using only local fresh items, many from her garden. How long since you've had ice cream made from cows you are looking at? Russell was born here. Karamea is a gateway to some wonderful exploring and coastline. It is definitely worth going out of your way to this unique area of New Zealand. We will be back!
