Upon arrival we were greeted by a friendly,good looking and sweaty Ed (who authenticated the "farm' experience mowing the lawn). By then,we knew we're going to experience a wonderful time as we entered our place of stay; a very complete house which we think we could live there forever. Grazing sheeps completed the picture postcard.
We have a confession to make Debbie! Your exquisite croissants and bread did not live to see the next morning's breakfast. They were consumed quite immediately after you sent them. Not that we were hungry, but the temptation was too great.
The location of Broekhaven Cottage and proximity to touristic places around Rotorua bodes well for tourists who search for 'living in the farm' . Debbie and Ed are very accomodating and friendly. Perfect hosts. We left the place with fond memories.
