We rented a studio for 4 days and it was perfect, they are self contained and have everything that you need and having the animals on the doorstep is a real benefit as it placated my girlfriend. The location is really good just on the edge of the town.

Awesome setting and fantastic for kids. Kids were completely entertained with the animals, play area and tramp - all in which were in easy vacinity of all the cottages. The cottages themselves were clean and roomy - great place to meet with others or stay as a family.

We stayed as two couples and enjoyed a quiet, relaxed atmosphere but close to amenities. A couple of great restaurants nearby. A big deck to enjoy the afternoon sun and a glass of wine. Easy to find just off main route to Hastings.

Fabulous place to stay. Very private, close to town. Super comfy beds. Well appointed with those little extra touches. Would highly recommend for comfort, cleanliness and convenience. Free wifi too. We stayed in the studio overlooking the alpaca paddock. Good value. Would definately stay again.

We had a fantastic stay at the cottage. The kids loved the playground and the animals, we will have to return in summer to enjoy the pool. The cottage was spacious, very clean and tidy. Our hosts were very friendly, relaxed and accommodating.

Going to bed with alpacas, sheep, ponies and a donkey right next to you is a nice feeling and the animals are friendly enough for a pat as well which takes away the stress of traveling. We got lost mainly because the road sign is non existent but that was our only gripe. The hosts are nice, the studio room... More

WE HAD SUCH A GREAT TIME. Start to finish the cottages delivered everything we needed this weekend. Sunny, safe, warm, pretty homes on a great setting for kids (who loved the alpacas, pool and playground best of all). The proximity to havelock and the easy bike c trails, fab shopping and restaurants. It simply could not have been better. Oh... More
