Our family arrived late on a weekend, after a day of tramping to Key Summit (off the Milford Road), and it was a welcome sight to turn into Glacial Rock to a haven of greenery, quiet and superb views. Lucia the enthusiastic and friendly pet dog gave us a warm welcome. The cottage was replete with every comfort, and the heated flooring was an especially nice touch.
The next day, we were pleasantly surprised to see Finn and his kids setting up a huge trampoline just outside the cottage. It was simply the most fun and wonderful way for our kids to play and get to know each other.... and play they did - even in the rain!
Later, Finn and Olivia led us on a most interesting walking tour of the farm, which included feeding the lambs, climbing fences, herding the sheep into a neighbouring paddock, seeing the cows and horses, and collecting farm fresh eggs from right underneath the chooks!
Sarah is a warm, helpful and giving host, and the children an absolute delight - especially if you have kids of your own who deserve playmates of equivalent energy levels!
All said - we were very happy to have stayed and the proof of the pudding was when our kids just did not want to leave the place! Highly recommended, especially if you have a family with kids as well.
