Stay with locals & experience life on a Kiwi farm. We farm cattle & sheep on 200 acres, approximately 6km from historic Oamaru.

From late August to mid October we rear calves so if you visit during this time you have the opportunity to pitch in & help. Other animals on the farm include pet sheep/lambs, alpaca, working dogs, a kune kune pig, chickens, ducks & 2 house cats.

We offer 2 types of accommodation.

There are 2 hosted B&B bedrooms in our home, with private bathroom/toilet that is shared with same party guests only. 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.

Take time to explore Oamaru and the Waitaki region.
