Fantastic experience. Students enjoyed the experience and we were fantastically hosted by Andrew and Kylie Stewart. Students got to enjoy a number of activities while on their camp and were put of their comfort zones at times with activities which was a good challenge for the students.

Without a doubt the single most amazing location in the Manawatu to catch the starry night sky! Night spent in a beautiful vintage cabin, with lovely animal companions around that kept us entertained the whole trip. Thank you for having us Kylie :) Send my love to Porky -Kimberley W

The whole experience was marvelous! Enjoyed every bit of it, from feeding the farm animals to watching the star constillation up close in the night. The hosts were very pleasant and the hospitality was great. I would totally stay there again without a doubt. Thanks for having me.

Stayed only 2 nights in the west hut. Very comfortable! Great beds, view....serenity. although we are glad we added the extra cost of access to the bunkhouse. More room, area out of rain to play and make a mess, close to the animals, Plus PlayStation when the kids are done with roaming the paddocks. Dog and shearing show was great.... More
