My wife and I have just spent a month in New Zealand. Our first stay was at Swallows Ridge. We consider that this was the best of all the places we stayed. The welcome from Chris & Mike was very pleasant and very natural. Their home is beautifully positioned on a hilltop surrounded by rolling farmland affording distant sea views. The room we had was extremely well appointed and we also had the use of a guest kitchen, a lounge and the outdoor pool.
They recommended walks and restaurants which proved to be excellent .... make sure you eat at the Pear Tree !
