This was one of the best b&bs we stayed in while in New Zealand, there were two units one sleeping four people and one sleeping up to eight. We were in the bigger unit it was clean and basic but had its own small kitchen with cooker and fridge. The animals on the farm were great and the kids loved them the owners had no problem with you going into the fields at any time to see them.
In the morning we had breakfast in the owners house which was good we had the choice of fruit cereal and toast we paid extra to have an ostrich omelette the owners husband had to drill the egg which he done in front of us all.
Over all this is a great place to stay and great value for money.
