Why stay at a regular hotel or B&B when you can stay on a sheep farm?! It is clearly more about the tourism biz than the sheep farming biz, but is still a really fun experience. I got to help sheer a sheep, we fed some alpacas and my fiancée LOVED Pete and Gaye's kitchen. We stayed in the private... More

We were really looking forward to our visit having read the reviews on trip advisor and the reality lived up to the all the positive reviews. After a two hour drive from beautiful Kaikoura we arrived at the farm stay and were delighted to be told that even though there were only the two of us, we had been upgraded... More

We were lucky to be upgraded to the larger house for our stay. We were two women out for a long trip, so it was nice to each have our own room for a great night's sleep. Pete gave us a fun tour of the farm and animals, sheep shearing and the works. Gaye fed us breakfast (yummy muffins) and... More

We stayed in Pete's farmstay for a night on 30th March. Both Peter & Gaye are very welcoming & friendly. As there was only one other family staying, the host are generous enough to offer the 1 bedroom cottage to us, though we opted for the house accomodation. The cottage is very clean & super comfortable. It is fully furnished,... More

We stayed at Pete's Farm Stay for 2 nights from April 2-4 with our 22mo and had a wonderful time. We opted for the 1 bedroom cottage, which was beautifully furnished with a very comfortable bed and lovely shower in the ensuite with excellent water pressure. This cottage provides a basic kitchenette with kettle, toaster, fridge and microwave, so if... More

Our family of 4 adults stayed in a beautiful cottage in Pete's Farm Stay, and it was very warm, clean, relaxing, and cozy. The facilities were complete, with everything you'd need for an extended stay (even though we were only there for 2 nights). Pete and Gaye are very helpful and warm hosts! Gaye made such tasty muffins for our... More

Thank you very much for your review. We loved having you and meeting your family was great. As the sign says in our lobby "Enter as strangers- leave as friends" was really appropriate for your family. We were really disappointed about your bad experience on the other farmstay, so we are really happy you enjoyed it here. thanks again More

We had a very nice en suite room and Pete was very friendly and gave us an introduction to his alpacas. However, of the 26 B&Bs we stayed in, this was the second most expensive, and, given its remote location, a tad overpriced.

Hi. Pete and I are pleased you enjoyed your stay with us. In regard to your comment about pricing you must take into account that we also give our guests a farm tour and sheep shearing experience. This is not a extra price. This is INCLUDED in our price. So we are not just a bed & breakfast place. thanks... More
