The rooms and bathroom were immaculate. The setting was fabulous and our family of 4 was made to feel very welcome. Dinner and breakfast were great. Thank you Judi and Ross - we would love to visit again!

It's impossible to put into words how peaceful it is to sleep on a farm in the middle of nowhere. No streetlights shining in the windows, no traffic noises, only the sounds of sheep bleating in the morning. Plus you can see how a New Zealand farm operates and you can get to know some locals. Judi, Ross, and their son are so kind and welcoming and we had a wonderful time talking with them over tea and asking them questions about the kiwi life. They provided us with a delicious and healthy breakfast and recommended a walk around the property, which we thoroughly enjoyed. For an additional fee, you can actually go work on the farm with the family. The room has a private deck where it is nice to relax with a bottle of wine and unbelievable views as far as the eye can see. I had one of the most peaceful and restful sleeps of my life at Southern Venues and I hope to return one day for a longer visit!

We have spent Christmas evening at the Farm. We were very delighted by the warm welcome we received from Judi and Ross. The room is very nice and tidy. The tranquility of the surroundings and hills of North Southland are just marvelous to calm down and relax.

Impeccably clean. Very well decorated, newly renovated...just perfect. The hosts Ross and Judi were super nice. Breakfast was ready for us in the morning and even though we could not sit down and enjoy, Ross gave us a bag with fruits and yoghurts for the road. Talk about hospitality... I would go back in a heartbeat! Highly recommend!
