This is my first B&B experience but my third farm stay experience. It has been the most memorable stay that I have ever had overseas!
The hosts Mick & Theresa were splendid! They were so hospitable and we had a great time chatting with them. We definitely enjoyed their welcome tea, homemade pastries and their complimentary drink. Breakfast is a sumptuous treat -- homemade smoothie, yogurt, muesli, great, jams, as well as fruit salad, ham cheese croissant and scrambled eggs! Simply delicious!!
We love the cosy place too! The rooms were lovely, the shower facilities was great too and we love the ambience of the main dining area, glass conservatory, outdoor dining deck and the multipurpose room where we watched movies!
The highlight of my stay was the fun I had feeding and playing with the donkeys, sheep, ducks and chickens!! I never had so much joy playing with these animals on the field. Feeding them is like an interestingly intimate relationship as they pick their food from our palms! I am so missing these animals!!! I want to feed them again, pat the donkeys and sheep & carry the ducks!
There's nothing in this B&B that falls short of my expectations. I'll definitely recommend this place for people going to NZ.
