Raglan farmstay is many things ..relaxed, fun, chilled, stylish, intimate and welcoming! Although there are many options for accommodation in Raglan I now find myself turning into this familiar driveway every visit. It begins to feel like home very quickly. Chris is a wonderful host and what i love about this place is that although it is his home, Cris is not hovering constantly as some B&B owners do... you are left to do your own thing or join in with the eclectic mix of people that stay here.
I have not booked any of the rooms in the house as yet but the cabins have the most comfortable beds and beautiful linen. It is such a relaxed vibe and i enjoy being able to wonder around the small farm. I am in love with all the crazy animals ... pigs.. goat ..and a very friendly chicken.
Its only a small stroll down the road into town ... so much to do in Raglan!
I must say i love that the doors are never locked and i plan to keep my key in the door as always... this is a magical place full of beautiful interesting people. You feel safe and happy here. Highly recommend it!
