“quickest way to relax”
Reviewed 21 February 2014

is to meet Lisa and Anthony - the gracious and talents hosts and owners of Black Sheep farm. Accommodation lovely and the atmosphere warm, relaxing and welcoming.
Theres also plenty to do - from helping pick vegetables, feed the chicken or sheep (our little one had a ball!). Anthony always has a project on the go, so if you fee like rolling up your sleeves - he's always after a helping hand! best part about it - 10min walk to stunning & relaxing NZ beaches, so you really do have the best of both worlds here. Safe for Kids too.

Room Tip: the room to the right of the stairs is the largest and most pleasant.

We recently stayed a night at Black Sheep farm and what a treat it was. Our hosts Anthony and Lisa were charming and welcoming. We sampled some of Anthony's wonderful cheeses and the children explored the veggie gardens, helped feed the sheep and hens and generally had a wonderful time roaming around the grounds. The sitting rooms are peaceful, light and airy and the views from all parts of the house are amazing and varied, from sea to forest. It felt like we had stayed a lot longer than a night! Left feeling very relaxed having also just eaten a wonderful home cooked breakfast. Will definitely return.

We holidayed in NZ in Jan and staying a couple of nights at the Country Homestead was a highlight. We loved the farm atmosphere and the things for our daughter to see and experience, and yet we were 5 mins from the most gorgeous beaches.
Our room was enormous and extremely well fitted out, with a brand new en-suite, a sitting area, balcony and lovely linen, plus views out to the bay. The overall presentation of the homestead is wonderful.
We opted for the cooked breakfast and I cannot recommend this highly enough. Lisa and Anthony really know their way around the kitchen and the food was fantastic, and mostly homemade and/or from the farm.
Overall we were made to feel very comfortable, welcomed but not crowded. Lisa and Anthony were happy to talk about their farm and let our daughter 'help' out. You really couldn't ask for more from B&B style accommodation, and the area has many delights to explore. We wished we could have stayed longer.

We have just had the most amazing few days at Black Sheep Farm Country Homestead and would thoroughly recommend it if you want a relaxing time and total experience away from the hustle and bustle of city life .. In anticipation we drove up the driveway to the big house on the hill.... Up the swirling staircase to our room which was spcious, comfortable, and the view from the balcony to Bream Bay..Wow ! Lisa & Anthony were perfect hosts, had thought of everything to make it a very relaxing stay. We enjoyed walking around the property and the insight into farm life, from the huge organic vegetable beds to our daughter helping to feed the chickens & sheep, Her highlight was lamb spotting and helping collect eggs which we later had for breakfast! As well as delicious homemade breads, jam and muesli. We also sampled the blackberry cake and homemade halloumi... They were to die for! A great base to explore local beaches Waipu Cove & Langs beach.. Mangawhai Heads 15 mins away.. Overall fabulous few days away .. We will be back and will definitely recommend to others.

Room Tip: Our room was the Tui Room spacious, fresh, blue & yellow colours ..great view to the bream bay

We just came back from a night at Black Sheep farm and we had a wonderful time. The house is huge, clean and very quiet. I was very impressed with how the farm is run and how environmentally friendly the owners are and many things are recycled and reused on the farm, the gardens are full of organic vegetables. Lisa and Anthony were very accommodating and Lisa brought us a platter of home made cheeses and other delicious nibbles and really made the effort to make us feel comfortable. There was a yummy smell of fresh bread baking the following morning while we ate home grown fruits and home cooked muesli for breakfast. Lisa took some time to show us around the farm and let my toddlers see the chickens and sheep being fed. Very restful and relaxing stay and would definitely recommend to others. Two beaches are less than 5 mins away as well.

Black Sheep Farm is just what we were looking for. Comfortable, spacious, fantastic views & location. Lisa & Anthony were the perfect hosts, they were there if we needed them otherwise we were able to enjoy our privacy. We will be back. Oh shouldn't forget the breakfast, it was divine!

Black Sheep Farm is a beautiful setting for a relaxing, restful getaway. From the moment I walked into the house I knew this would be a wonderful experience. The staircase and rooms downstairs are very inviting. The bedrooms are spacious, comfortable and have a great outlook. You can wake up and spend some time in your room enjoying a cup of tea or make your way downstairs to the conservatory for some company. I had some beautiful walks around the property. There are great areas to sit quietly and read a book or walk around and meet the animals (sheep and chooks are very friendly). I was also able to enjoy the beautiful beaches only minutes away. It's the best of both worlds. Anthony and Lisa are the prefect hosts. I will definitely be going back and will tell others.
