Stay with locals & experience life on a Kiwi farm. We farm cattle & sheep on 300 acres, approximately 6km from historic Oamaru. As well as farming bull beef we also have a collection of other farm animals including pet sheep/lambs, alpaca, working dogs, a kune kune pig, chickens, ducks & 2 house cats. We offer 2 types of accommodation.

There are a hosted B&B bedroom in our personal home, with private bathroom/toilet. A delicious continental breakfast & 4pm farm tour are included in your stay. The other option is a Shepherd's Hut which is separate from the house. The Shepherds Hut is self-contained and has an outdoor bathtub. The farm tour can be purchased as an optional extra.
