Rustic accommodation in a beautiful valley with friendly hosts. If you like camping but prefer not to blow up your own bed or put up your tent, this is for you. The beds are provided in cute yurts, a teepee or a house truck. Cooking facilities are a well appointed outdoor kitchen with gas hobs and a BBQ available. Excellent drinking water is piped directly to the kitchen from a spring. The solar shower provides plenty of hot water for comfortable shower with a view. The garden is gorgeous with many quirky touches, even a lake with a boat, and the hosts Jim and Jane are friendly and welcoming.
If you must stay internet connected, WIFI is provided and there are plenty of places to visit nearby, including "world famous in NZ" Little River gallery.
For me, it could have done with a better sign posting to the office (it took a bit of a search to find a proprietor when we arrived), and more toilets (two were fine until the crowd of 12 turned up, then two were not enough!) I also wasn't keen on the biting insects, though they seemed to like me well enough.
These were minor irritations in a lovely few days though, all in all I thoroughly recommend this glamping experience.More
