My Japanese teacher recommended me this farmstay but I dunno why she knew it. I spent just one night at Warkworth. There were nice animals, kids, and activities. It was the best time in...

I stayed with Simon this past January and through my 3 week journey through New Zealand and Australia this was one of my most memorable and special times there. I had so much laughter and enjoyment staying at this farm. Between the giant pig "Lucky" to the goats, sheep, and chicken with her little chicks that sleep in a basket,...

I have been a number of times with my daughter who is 5 nearly 6 and she loves the farmstay and am looking to go again next month. My daughter says the best experience is feeding the chickens and found the experience a homely one and a relaxed atmosphere and I will be going up plenty of times to come

Simon and his partner will do what ever they could to make you have a good stay at their farm (moto, advice of things to do in the region, shear a sheep, feed a veal...). We were with our 2 kids (2 years and 2 month), they both really enjoy the stay especially the older one. I could not really...

If you want to experience life on a farm and have great fun with great hosts then look no further. My 3 children loved feeding the pig, sheering a sheep, fetching the cattle, drenching livestock, holding the chick's; the list goes on. Furthermore, on our 3 night stay we got to visit other local attractions including horse riding and bathing...

In January it was a fun holiday experience for a family that had returned to live in NZ. Simon gave the girls of 10 and 13 so much 'hands on' time with the friendly animals teaching them so much and letting them help shear the goats. They rated it tops and still talk about it. There were other places nearby...

I had a great time at Simons and Veronicas farm, I stayed there around a week. We sheared a few sheep, that was a real farm experience :) Also feeding the animals and milking the goat was cool. There is a lot to do around, like exploring some nice beaches, going snorkeling at goat island or going horseriding near warkworth....
