We enjoyed 2 nights here in February. We arrived on a cold day with strong winds but had a lovely welcome from June & Murray with tea and cake! Our room was very big with sliding patio doors to the garden and our car was parked at the end of the path.
Catlins Farmstay is like an oasis in the middle of the countryside. Their beautiful garden surrounds the house, like an English cottage garden, is what they have built up from farm fields over 48 years!
As we like gardens they recommended we visit Maple Glen about 20 miles away which we did. This is even more stunning and if you love gardens this is a must see visit.
We also enjoyed watching the sheep shearers after breakfast.
Great breakfast too! Thank you.
