Kit and Sheryl were lovely hosts passionate about their work and alpacas. Our stay in the cottage was pleasant and warm with a sumptuous breakfast provided in the morning. The 4 of us thoroughly enjoyed interacting with the alpacas! They are highly inquisitive animals so they didn't run from us although they mostly just sauntered gracefully away. Sheryl let us...

The farm was just a 30 min drive from Christchurch city center and there's also a grocery store and McDonald's less than 10 min drive away so it was really convenient. The unit was amazing! Absolutely clean, warm despite the freezing weather in winter, spacious and the kitchen was very well equipped. The alpacas were really lovely as well! Our... More

The unit was clean and comfortable and had views over the fields where the alpacas graze. The tour of the farm included an interesting talk about the alpacas and we were able to stroke a bay. The bed was comfortable and the hosts were happy to advise on what to visit and where to eat. The breakfasts were fine but... More

We tried hang-guidling in Queenstown, visiting Milford Sounds and took a glacier helicopter tour in West Coast and the Alpine train from West Coast to East Coast. This is now more than a month from our NZ trip, but... More

The farm is peaceful & beautiful, alpacas are gorgeous, accommodations are lovely. Honestly our only regret was that we had only one night here...wish we had a week! Thanks Kit and Sheryl,... More

After travelling for 48hrs it was wonderful to stay in this most relaxing B&B. Although classed as a B&B you are actually in your own unit, where breakfast is provided everyday. Lovely fresh eggs!

We were delighted by Kit and Sheryl's great hospitality and their wonderful alpaca farm during our 2 nights stay in January 2012. The farm is big and quiet and there were heaps of alpacas for us to take photos! Kit gave a wonderful farm tour and explained his farm and alpaca business which was very informative. We stay in a...
