Thank you so much for leaving a review about your stay at Gumtree. Love how you wrote 'working/pet' dogs as that is very true, our dogs are far too spoilt!!

Jennie and her family are absolutely great hosts. They are not your typical commercial farm but more of a family hobby and lifestyle choice they have made. You get to see a variety of animals and I had my first experiences with the alpacas. Depending...More

Our rural farmstay/homestay is located less than a 10 minute drive from the Historic Victorian Precinct and Blue Penguin Colony in Oamaru, so you can experience the best of both worlds! For a memorable experience More why not spend a night or two immersed in the culture of a small working farm and get to know the locals. Guest accommodation is located inside our spacious family home, surrounded by trees and gardens, on 200 acres where we farm beef cattle and sheep. Other animals include 3 working dogs, alpacas, chickens & ducks, Greta the naughty goat and house cats. Mid August to early October we rear calves and lambs - guests staying during these months have the opportunity to participate. Children over 3 years of age most welcome (we have children ourselves) and a wonderful opportunity to experience life on a small farm. Tariff includes:- Continental Breakfast (cereals, toast, homemade scones & jams, yoghurt, fruit, juice, tea/coffee), Afternoon Tea if you arrive at the right time of day!(Home baking, tea/coffee), free wifi internet and brief farm tour if time allows. Being only a short drive to town guests are able to sample Oamaru's wonderful restaurants. Optional Extras - Kiwi style evening meal, Sheep Shearing Demonstration, Working Dog Demonstration (please contact us for prices. We are the perfect base for sightseeing in and around historic Oamaru. We hope you visit soon! Less
