"After tiring driving trip around the South Island, we arrived at Pete's farm on a late afternoon and had lots of 'wow' experience. The cottage we stayed was so neat, clean, beautiful and quiet etc, which was all we needed to unwind and relax. The kids had great time feeding the lambs, playing with the sheep dogs and jumping on the trampoline. Sheep shearing was a very informative and interesting session both for adults and kids! Let me call this experience a '5 Star Farm stay!' "
