Was there anything really great about your stay you'd like to share?

It was such a beautiful place to stay. I was just passing through with a friend on a road trip but I would love to bring my family here some day! The facilities were spotless and well maintained, the surrounding views were spectacular. They had warm muffins waiting for us when checked in and obliged us in every way during our stay, for example providing torches so we could check out the glow worm caves at night and pellets so we could feed the sheep in the morning!

Are there any improvements you would like to suggest?

I love that the location is rural yet close to Picton and Havelock. My favourite part is the night walk to see the glow worms. Awesome

Are there any improvements you would like to suggest?

Maybe better play equipment for the younger kids

The owners are such great hosts! Made us feel welcome and also gave us warm muffins upon arrival. The room was very clean and had everything we needed. It was just as promised. Parking was super easy and my daughter loved feeding the friendly farm animals. There is a place where you can see glow worms in the dark and it is only a short walk through the farms. Must see!

Being welcomed with a basket of warm muffins was a very pleasant and unexpected surprise. The onsite 'pet' animals were fun and the walk to see the glow worms a treat.

The toilet /bathroom area in the unit was very tight. If they ever consider building more units then a little bigger area for this should be considered. They welcome guests 'recycling' their towels, but did not provide sufficient spots to hand towels to dry. We did mention this to the owners on our departure

Thank you for your comments and we are aware that the bathrooms could be larger (we hope to be able to do something about the design in the future). The hooks for towels were behind the door, as mentioned on your departure, but having said that we can always put some more in the unit as we know from personal experience that it is frustrating to not be able to hang your towels up somewhere out of the way. We are pleased that you managed to feed the pets and go and see the glow worms despite your hectic schedule with the air show. All the best for the rest of 2015! Kind Regards, Barbara and Chris

Great fun to feed the animals (& be mobbed by the sheep!)
