Our tour company made a last-minute substitution of afternoon tea at Homebush Stables when the sheep farm we were supposed to visit had a family emergency. I hope they never make that mistake again. First, there is absolutely no signage whatsoever indicating where the stables are located; to the contrary, there is a “Private Property, No Trespassing” sign at the gate. There isn’t even an address shown. As a result, the tour van drove up and down the road looking for this place for 15 minutes before we finally decided to take our chances and drive up the unwelcoming drive. On the way in, we passed a catering truck and another vehicle on the driveway. When we arrived, there was no one in sight. The tour guide finally found the owner’s son, who informed him that his mother had departed, along with the caterer that was supposed to provide the afternoon tea, because we had arrived late. The guide explained that both his home office and he himself had called and emailed repeatedly to let them know we were behind schedule, but no one responded. “We have no service here,” was the reply. When I said to him, “We had a hard time finding you — you could use a sign out front,” he responded, “It’s really simple if you know where you’re going.” He opened the old barn where some antiques are stored, and showed us a water turbine, but no tea was served. In fact, nothing was served. We were led into a small grove of apple trees and were told we could pick our own apples if we wanted. What a huge, annoying waste of time. Avoid at all costs.

We stopped here after our train trip to Arthurs' Pass for a break and something to eat. The place has history written all over it. There is a restaurant [lovely food], Museum [interesting and quite comprehensive], a shop and gardens. The trees are an absolute delight as is the staff. Well worth a visit - hope to return on our own in the future.

After our train ride to Arthur's Pass we stopped here for a short break. Wish it had been longer. What a lovely place to wander around. Plenty to see in the small museums and shop. The staff were so friendly and welcoming. We had a delicious afternoon tea in the grounds.

Well worth a visit. Great museum of early NZ. Buildings in brick from their own brickworks. Impressive water turbine and water tower. Amazing gardens and large trees. One could wander around for some time enjoying the scenes. Established in the 1800s and still in the Deans family it truly is a window into out history and pioneering spirit.

Held a picnic here with friends and enjoyed a walk and tour of the grounds and museum ..... entry $10 (i think children are free). Beautiful grounds with much to look at ... expect to be here 4/5 hours or more especially on a very warm day such as the one we were there on ......
