Had a great time at the farm for 2 days. On both days, we did the farm tour. We are also free to feed the alpacas and sheep anytime. Enjoyed the sheep shearing demonstration and watching Pete the sheep dog herding the sheep. A must is to have breakfast in the main cottage. The breakfast area overlooks the sheep pasture...

It's a wonderful farm, very peaceful n lovely couple. Besides watching sheep shearing it's a lovely n peaceful place to relax n unwind n enjoy the tranquility away from city life. Especially nice is Pete's lovely n precocious granddaughter Morgan, who is really lovely n cute n full of energy. She's the star of the farm n I wish her...

Our entire family absolutely loved staying at Pete's Farm. It was very nice, clean, and peaceful. Set in the green grassy plane, dotted with sheep & alpaca, with snow topped mountains in the distance, you can't beat it for atmosphere. We wanted to stay out of Christchurch, but nearby & this was perfect. Pete & Gaye were absolutely wonderful, so...

Pete's Farm Stay is so much more than a B&B. Pete and Gaye are incredible hosts. Pete's comfortable way is engaging and not at all touristy. What fun to participate in the sheep shearing and to watch the dog at work. The alpacas are beautiful. I bought one of the alpaca sweaters for which Gaye's mother had spun the yarn...

We just flew into Christchurch and needed some much needed time to recuperate and adjust to the time. The farm was a great stopover to rejuvenate. It was a short drive away from the airport. The cottage we stayed in was clean and spacious. It was away from the main house where Pete and his wife lived in so that...

Stayed here with the family at the start of our tour of NZ. Accommodation modern clean comfortable and a good size for our family of two adult and three children. The farm tour was interesting and something the kids loved, especially feeding the alpacas! Breakfast is also good.

Our trip ends at Pete's Farm. I believed l can speak for most Malaysian in general as we always dream to stay in a "farm". Let me start by saying its one of the best thing our group has done. After 2 weeks of driving around the South we were blessed with such hospitality from Gaye n Pete. This farm...

Thanks so much for your great review. Pete and I are glad that you had such a great time. It was a pleasure to meet you all and we hope to see you all again real soon. New Zealand is such a lovely country especially the south island that you could come back every year and still not see everything.

Away from the City surrounded by sheep and alpaca with a comfy bed and a cup tea in the morning, what could be better? Oh the morning demonstration of sheep shearing, feeding the alpaca, and buying woll products from the shop. Excellent, friendly hosts. And a real sheep dog.

We spent the last night of our 14-day trip around the south island and it was a perfect ending. The kids loved the animals, Pete the sheep dog, the sheep, the lamb, the alpacas. The cottage is spacious and we finally could spread out all our stuff and repackage for the flight home. The breakfast was wonderful and muffins delicious....
