We stayed here for our final 2 nights of a 2 week long honeymoon roadtrip round the south island. We couldn't have picked a better location. The cottage was beautiful, with an outdoor shower and bath, and the couple that run the farm couldn't be more friendly or helpful. Really made us feel welcome and clearly enjoy the job they do.
The cottage we had was classy and very very comfortable. When we arrived, there was kiwi shaped lavender shortbread waiting out for us! These are the little touches of thoughtfulness that set this place apart from anywhere else we visited. We spent our final night soaking in the outdoor bath under the stars with a glass of chilled pinot gris - just perfect. Lavender toiletries provided are just bliss.
Many of the reviews talk about the home baked produce - oh my goodness! Warm fresh baked bread on our first day, which we smothered in butter and honey. On our second day, fresh buttermilk and date scones, and creamy thick yoghurts. Fresh fruit, free-range eggs from the hens, cereal, coffee, juices - just delicious! Set us up properly for our days out on the water.
Take the time to wander round the gardens in the evening as the sun is going down - they are beautiful and so peaceful. We met the hens that lay the eggs and also discovered the boules pitch.
All in all, it was a wonderful end to a fantastic holiday. If I can make it back here again I will!
