We were not sure what to expect when we arrived at the farm, because the exterior is rustic and low key, but the B&B lodge where we stayed was superb. Our bedroom was spacious and simply furnished in a clean modern style, with interesting touches, and good bed linen, although the en-suite wet room might not be to everyone's liking. (Where does one put the towels?) Sheep grazed up to the window and the uninterupted view towards Mount Cook, was breathtaking. The windows opened onto our own space on the wooden veranda outside - perfect for relaxing with a glass of wine. The lodge has three bedrooms and a guest living room with very good kitchen facilities, and the same view of the mountains. There is also a washing machine for guests to use. After shopping in Twizel, we prepared a light meal for ourselves and joined other guests there for a very relaxing evening. Our hosts, Sean and Nicola were very friendly and welcoming and provided a good breakfast, with homemade savoury scones and banana bread. An lovely place to stay to relax and unwind, or stop off on the way to Mount Cook.
