We stayed at Pete's for our first night in New Zealand upon landing at Christchurch. Pete's was wonderful! Super friendly guy who showed us around upon arrival. The kids bounced on the mega trampoline after being cooped up on a plane for 10 hours, and loved the rest of the playground that was on site. Most of us (group of...

We stayed at Pete's place with our young family and it was such a lovely taste of NZ farm life. A beautiful and peaceful location and the kids loved the farm animals and playground. We even got to see a live Alpaca birth! The cottage we stayed in was very clean and had plenty of space for the 4 of...

Stayed for 2 nights at the farm at the end of our New Zeland trip on 7th & 8th Jan 17. We reached at 4 in the evening, it was drizzling which made the enviornment even more enchanting. It is a 80 acre farm with 150 sheep and 19 alpacas. Peter and Gaye, owners are very hospitable. Feeding the alpacas...

On our New Zealand adventure, our family tried to have a variety of lodging selections so a short farmstay seemed like a good choice. Being located near Rangiora and Christchurch, Pete's Farm Stay is a perfect place to take a break and breathe in the country. Pete and Gaye are wonderful hosts and the animals are so much fun to...

Pete and Gaye were wonderful hosts. They were warm, friendly, generous and gracious. Shortly after checking-in, Pete took us on a farm tour which we thoroughly enjoyed, and gave us what we consider the rare opportunity to go up close to the lamb, sheep and alpacas, to feed and hug them. We loved being that close to the animals, and...

Had a great time at the farm for 2 days. On both days, we did the farm tour. We are also free to feed the alpacas and sheep anytime. Enjoyed the sheep shearing demonstration and watching Pete the sheep dog herding the sheep. A must is to have breakfast in the main cottage. The breakfast area overlooks the sheep pasture...

Our entire family absolutely loved staying at Pete's Farm. It was very nice, clean, and peaceful. Set in the green grassy plane, dotted with sheep & alpaca, with snow topped mountains in the distance, you can't beat it for atmosphere. We wanted to stay out of Christchurch, but nearby & this was perfect. Pete & Gaye were absolutely wonderful, so...

Pete's Farm Stay is so much more than a B&B. Pete and Gaye are incredible hosts. Pete's comfortable way is engaging and not at all touristy. What fun to participate in the sheep shearing and to watch the dog at work. The alpacas are beautiful. I bought one of the alpaca sweaters for which Gaye's mother had spun the yarn...
