We absolutely loved it and were very sad when we had to leave after 2 nights. Chrisoph and Corinne (and their team!) are amazing hosts who really take care of their guests. We came with our RV, they had us hooked up with electricity and water. They have a little shack with toilet and hot water shower for the campers. You park your camper amidst the horses - on the pasture...! How great is that. We can only recommend to spend a few nights at Terra Nostra. We had two rides which were amazing. We had a blast. Despite parking our RV we ate dinner with all the „hotel“-guests. One big table, family style and delicious food! Dankä viel Mal! Mier hends meeega gnossä!

I just spent 4 wonderful days at Terra Nostra. Arrival was a bit awkward as everyone was in the middle of having dinner. However this passed really quick as the host quickly made more pizza in the stone oven for us and made us sit down. Everyone is eating together at a big table which always made for very interesting dinner conversations with people from all kinds of ways of life, as on top of the guests there also tend to be neighbors dropping by. Breakfast was plentiful and there was freshly baked bread every morning! For lunch guests get a lunch bag which was easily enough to get through the day. Anyway I’m sure if someone stays hungry he can always drop by the kitchen to get a snack fixed. There’s horseback riding, canoeing, walking trails etc. The hosts are very helpful with if you want to do a day trip, give you maps and detailed directions. All in all if you want to glean a little insight in the chilcotin way of life, you are most certainly not wrong at Terra Nostra!

Was a bit skeptical on arrival as there didn’t seem to be a clear arrival check in process. However the hosts were very welcoming. Cake and coffee was available free of charge on day 1 but not day 2. Had a nice paddle on lake Clearwater using the free canoes. Dinner on evening 1, though tasty was sparse and there was no where else to get extra food. Had a really great evening with very good company of other guests and Christophe playing guitar. Next day great trail ride with Coreen. Second evening’s dinner was poor. My summary would be that these are really lovely people who look after the animals very well and have created a great atmosphere for guests. However they could do with raising their game on the food hygiene, quality and presentation side (for example the male helper in the red and black checked shirt was serving food in the same outfit he had been riding horses / working in(!)). I would recommend because I think the hosts are genuine, diligent and welcoming and will put any small shortcomings right - maybe as guests we would have liked a little more ‘polish’ as regards food, otherwise good and met three star rating and more of a ‘Canadian ranch’ experience. P.s: consider binning the wacky home made bucket peanut butter on tin-can mouse trap in the little cabin near the stables - it doesn’t reflect who you are!

A little disappointed with the overall experience as wanted to stay here because wanted a ranch experience- I think it would be better to describe this as a Riding Stables. The owners do their best and the riding is great and I would not want to take that away from them. However I think the overall nature of the ‘ranch’ was left lacking. Please note the whole surrounding area was last year devastated with wildfire stopping just short of this property. Also felt that considering there was nowhere else in the surrounding area to get any food and drink it left a lot to be improved upon. Again I wanted to feel I was in Canada 🇨🇦 and instead felt I was at any typical European dining table. I also feel that there needs to be some food hygiene diligence put into the kitchen as there are way too many people in and out of this area without change of clothing between ‘ranch’ and ‘kitchen’ for my preference. Room for improvement in my opinion and I certainly wouldn’t rush back but as there is very little choice between Bella Coola and Williams Lake I guess people will have little option.

Our family of 5 (Mum, Dad + 3 kids ages 7,10 +12) from the UK stayed here for 6 days and we all fell in love with Terra Nostra Guest Ranch. If we could come back tomorrow, we would. We wanted somewhere where in the middle of nowhere where we could go riding, walking, canoeing and have some quality 'family time'. This place did not disappoint. We found that most people only stayed a couple of nights but if you enjoy outdoor activities this place is worth staying longer. Activities - horse riding - what could be better than riding beautiful horses in amazing scenery? Our family had 2 more experienced riders and 3 novice riders. We went on different rides based on our ability ie a slow beginners ride and a faster ride for those that could ride. They provided riding hats and cowboy boots for the whole family (the style is Western riding). The horses live in the field in-between the lake and ranch house so when the horses are not being ridden, the kids loved going down to the field and being able to go and fuss the horses and foals whenever they wanted. Horse riding costs extra but is worth it. Our daughter was also able to help groom the horses and get them ready for the rides on a couple of days which she loved just as much as the riding. Water activities - these are included in the price. We essentially had the lake to ourselves when we stayed. There are kayaks, canoes and sailboards available (and a variety of life jackets in a range of sizes). You don't have to book to use these, you just walk across the field to the boat house and help yourself. The lake is safe for swimming and our kids had an amazing time just being able to mess about in the water for hours with the canoes. Walks - there are (free) maps available from Terra Nostra which show local walks. One walk to Inspiration Point was amazing. You started by kayaking from 1 sided of the lake to the other and then followed a route to a fabulous viewpoint. It took most of the days for us (if you don't have kids it might not take as long). Again, we had the walk to ourselves. It wasn't like walking in the Lake District which at time can seem quite busy. You really did feel like you were in the middle of nowhere which I guess we were. Mountain bikes - again these were free to use. Only our youngest child was too small to use these but our older kids had great fun cycling round the ranch. Evenings for the kids - there is no mobile phone signal/wifi so this place is great for getting the kids outside making their own entertainment. There was a rope swing, giant Jenga, fences to climb and a dog to play with. The kids were safe to roam around the ranch and the adults could keep an eye on them from the veranda of the guest ranch. Even our most electronic addicted child kept himself happily entertained all evening. Food - we were worried about this before we visited as we still have 2 kids at the very fussy stage but all our kids enjoyed the food. Breakfast was served in the main ranch house (continental breakfast + something cooked each day eg bacon or eggs or pancakes). Lunch is provided as a packed lunch. If your kids are fussy its worth just asking them to make plain sandwiches the day before. The evening meal is eaten all together outside the ranch house and was often something from the giant BBQ (only 1 choice available either meat for the carnivores or a veg option if you have asked for veggie meals). Later in our stay there was a campfire ban in BC so the BBQ was out of use but the food (plain fresh food eg spag bol) was still enjoyed by the kids. Accommodation – due to unforeseen circumstances we had to extend our stay here by a couple of days so we got to try out 2 different types of accommodation. Our planned accommodation was in the main guest ranch and our family had the top floor to ourselves – 2 en-suit rooms. The rooms were spacious, clean, had comfortable beds, there was always hot water and there were great views from the windows. We also stayed in a 2 bed cabin which again had amazing views, was clean and comfortable. Both types of accommodation were fab. Wildlife – we saw a black bear, deer and beavers on the way here on highway 20. Although one of the other guests ran into a black bear on a morning jog here so beware there are bears about. There were also bald eagles on the lake and plenty of opportunity to see lots more. Biting flies; there are plenty of these about! We are from Scotland so we are used to midges. I would still say the midges in Scotland are worse due to the swarms you get, but the flies here were persistent. You do need to bring insect repellent (we later learned from our friends that Smidge is worth buying). Hospitality – The ranch is owned by Corinne and Christoph and they couldn’t have done more to ensure we had a great time. As I said at the start if we ever have opportunity to come back to Canada we will definitely visit Terra Nostra again. We had an amazing family holiday here.
