This accommodation is superb, the standards are second to none, the equipment is the best we have ever come across, it is peaceful, idyllic and it's all just wonderful. We will be back.

“Slice of Heaven”
Reviewed 17 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

This is a beautiful place to stay, quiet and private with a great feel. The farm is great with sheep, cows and chickens all living around the cottage.

The accommodation is really top notch, great quality throughout, a lot of hotels could learn from this. The full kitchen is great to use and the fire in the lounge room is excellent, comfy beds and heated flooring all add to this, there are two balcony's with large outdoor area's, one with a BBQ.

It is under 10 minutes to get to the CBD in Wanganui and is a true hidden gem.

We regret only staying 4 nights and really did not want to leave. We have promised ourselves that we will return for at least a week next time.

“Peaceful and pleasant piece of paradise, away from the hustle and bustle of a busy life.”
Reviewed 13 May 2014 for a stay in April 2014

A truly peaceful place to stay, in fact a paradise, with rural views and the serenity that is only found in the country. Yet the farmstay is very handy to Wanganui and all that it offers.

The farmstay is very well appointed and quiet, with modern comforts and is in no way a bach experience. Quality fit-out, furnishings, kitchen, and a bathroom to appeal to the high end visitor make this a luxury place to stay.

The animals were a welcome distraction for the children and the owners made us very welcome, being on hand if anything were needed, and unobtrusive at the same time to the point that you would not know anyone was on the same farmlet unless you went seeking them.

Truly recommended if you are staying in Wanganui, or if you are looking for a get away place, from the city, with only the sounds of nature around.

“Wonderful and way above our expectations”
Reviewed 23 February 2014 for a stay in January 2014

High quality and luxurious accommodation in a beautiful country side setting. This is the most comfortable and the best equipped place we have ever stayed in and we have been coming to New Zealand for 13 years. The whole experience was way above our expectations. Thank you for a fantastic stay. We have booked to stay again we were so impressed.
