"Three generations of us had a thoroughly enjoyable stay in this comfortable and cozy farm cottage. Neil's farm tour is a great way of learning how a smart, innovative mixed cropping and grazing farm works. And Gwen goes the extra mile (or five) in the cottage - all the breakfast ingredients you could need or want, fresh flowers, home-made bread and cookies. Recommended :-)"

"My husband and I spent a delightful 4 nights here in March 2008 - Gwen and Neil could not have been more hospitable or welcoming. The cottage is immaculate and beautifully & thoughtfully provisioned and it made the idea base for a 4 day visit to Hawkes Bay and the wineries."

Clare Fraser, 25/03/2008

"Absolutely splendid, wonderful people & awesome position. They lost one point because one bed was pretty terrible, but this did not detract from our enjoyment."
