Thanks for your lovely review. We really enjoyed hosting you and your family and it’s always great to hear positive feedback from past guests. I would like to make a tiny correction though - we farm 80 hectares, about 200 acres, not 2 hectares.

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!!

What a lovely place! Jennie really is the real deal and so is this bed & breakfast. We were a bit surprised to really be staying in their home with them. We had our own huge, lovely bathroom right across the hall from our room....More

About
Description
Our rural farmstay/homestay is located 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 why More not spend a night or two immersed in the culture of a small working farm and get to know the locals. Guest accommodation is either 2 bedrooms in our family home or a self-contained Shepherds Hut. Our farm has cattle, sheep, 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. Tariff includes:- Continental Breakfast (cereals, toast, scones & jams, yoghurt, fruit, juice, tea/coffee), free wifi internet and brief farm tour if time allows. Optional Extras - Kiwi style evening meal, Sheep Shearing Demonstration (please contact us for prices. We are the perfect base for sightseeing in and around historic Oamaru. We hope you visit soon!
