We, a family of four, stayed there for a night we could have easily stayed a couple more. The owner a absolutely charming and very polite and restrained in a very charming way.
We ate there, bought the organic produce from the farm, and cooked it in the main kitchen. We stayed in the main house upstairs Ina fabulously comfortable double bed woken up by the birds and a cow mowing in the back. Pure bliss for the city dwellers we are. Highly recommend it.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The heartbeat of our homestay comes from our Christian world-view which aims to give guests a friendly, warm welcome in our beautiful environment. This is your chance to unwind and recharge. We can be a convenient stop-over between the Mackenzie country and Christchurch, or simply a quiet weekend away from the bustle of city life. Peel Forest Homestay provides accommodation in our large, child friendly farmhouse, and is a tranquil place surrounded in forest and full of warmth. We are situated very close to the native forest with its rich bird life, and there is easy access to many of the Peel Forest park walks from our house. We have recently been developing a native wetland in one of our paddocks, and are busy planting it in native trees and flaxes. Through our farm, we aim to be self-sufficient, and have a large vegetable garden and fruit and nut trees, as well as a few cows, sheep, horses, chooks and ducks. Most of the food we eat is produced by us in the garden and on the farm. ... more less
