If you want to purchase a possum sweater or some Manuka honey, add the Pennydale shop to your itinerary. You will not find better prices anywhere on the South nor North Islands. The prices are 20% to 50% less than you'll pay at other shops...More

It well worth waiting until you get just south of balclutha. This is a large stop with lots of buses pulling in here. Guess that means fresh food

We were grossly overcharged for a pot of tea bags. We had not visited in 8 years and I don't think the toilets have been cleaned in that time

Out of town with lovely rural views. Nice friendly staff. Lots of parking space. Sadly, my coffee was just warm and my cheese rolls were not heated right through, and just warm also.

I have to say, that this store has a big range, but sadly, a big price tag on any, and everything. You can find some things that are good value, but the items like clothes, jewellery, and Ugg boots, are all expensive. The cafe wasn't...More

Hi there, I sent an email through your Peggydale giftshop email "contact" several days ago, and have not had a reply yet. It was about a sale item I saw in the café when I was on a Grand Pacific Tour recently. We enjoyed a very nice stop for lunch. Could someone please check the email contact facility, and reply to me please? Regards, Wendy. 14.10.2015
