You can't get much further away from it all than Murray and June's lovely homestay. I mentioned that I had heard a car go past in the morning (the first bit of traffic we'd heard in 2 days) and June complained about how busy the road was getting! Breakfasts were delicious, all local produce. There is plenty to see in a really lovely area of the South Island so it is well worth making the Catlins Farmstay a stop on your itinerary.
