From the moment we arrived Ann and Ross were so welcoming, my 8 year old daughter was in heaven playing with the sweetest kittens, meeting all the farm animals and having an interactive guided tour. The accommodation is cosy and homely, a true farm experience. In the morning my daughter didn't even want to leave and go to the caves. We are defiantly going to come back again and again. If you are looking for absolute enjoyment for your kids, some relaxing time out for yourself, or a great rural kiwi experience this is your place, the hosts will go out of their way to make sure you are comfortable and well looked after. The only problem was that we only stayed one night.... 3 would have been wonderful!
