“Just off the beaten track, splendidly rural”
Reviewed December 2, 2010

10 of us (6 brothers and sisters, plus 4 spouses) spent 3 nights here, doing Weka Walks by day. Six stayed in Hodd Cottage, and two couples in the Homestead. The facilities are well set up for people who want clean, homely, functional amenities, in a lovely setting. We had the fully-catered food option, and the volume and quality of the food supplied was excellent, the dinners being memorable. The hosts, Virginia and Neil, are relaxed and friendly, and happy to talk about their farm and countryside. The Weka Walks cover a variety of ground, and are well-marked; the exercise lessens the guilt about all the eating (and drinking). This is a great "get away from it all" experience, and for the townies there is delight with cows and calves, sheep and lambs, and hens in paddocks over the Hodd Cottage fence, and fallow deer also within sight. One of our number became a ''farmhand for a couple of hours, and is still beaming about the experience.
