Great spot and the large house was perfect for our group of nine adults.

Great spot and the large house was perfect for our group of nine adults. We spent a lot of time socialising around the tables outside and in the pool too. Will definitely look to come back. Great pies at the local bakery fyi!

The spacious house had all the facilities you need plus a clean pool, bikes, go-kart, pool table and a very friendly dog called Rugger. The location is on top of a hill overlooking the valley towards Nelson, which is about a half hour drive away. Wakefield is just down the road and has a small grocery store and a few other shops. We loved the peaceful setting and the lovely views.

It's a fantastic location & the views are incredible.

  • 3 of 5

It's a fantastic location & the views are incredible. It's a little tricky to find initially but it's not a huge problem.

The house itself shows the strain of being both a backpacker's as well as a holiday-home and needs some TLC, and it badly needs another toilet upstairs, or at least the bathroom and toilet separating.

However, the (6) kids loved it. "best holiday ever!" and it's a fabulous location for large, or multi, family holidays. And, house aside, we had a lot of fun.

Xmas 2016 on top of the world.

  • 5 of 5

Xmas 2016 on top of the world......6 adults + 2 dogs had a great 4 nights over xmas on the farm. Beautiful spot, very relaxing. We had "rugger" the farm dog join us - fitted in with our lot easy, very smutchy loveable dog, would of kept him if he didn't live in such a great spot - oh and belong to a good guy. Its an awesome private hilltop retreat but its only a couple mins drive to cafe / supermarket / pub / pharmacy. Perfect - will 100% come again.
