We stayed at Ryland Estate for two nights with my husband's parents and our two young children. It's a beautiful rural retreat and the perfect base for exploring the region.
The apartment is very tastefully furnished with good, spacious bedrooms and a great library of books - there were even some children's toys which our girls loved (although not as much as running around under the sprinklers in the beautiful gardens!). Peter and Trish are friendly and accommodating hosts, without being at all intrusive - the perfect balance. We had wonderful breakfasts with fresh eggs, and in the evening Peter gave us a selection of produce fresh from the veggie patch.
Rylands was a real highlight of our travels in New Zealand. Highly recommended.
