It is a great place to get away from it all and soak in the countryside, birds and animals included. Breakfast was delicious and the house is comfortable and clean.

Charles and Annette are very welcoming and have a beautiful home in a beautiful setting. They gave us some great tips about what to do with the rest of our day. The room was very clean and well furnished. A great place to stay!

We had a lovely stay with Charles and Annette. Their place was exactly as described and pictured, with the addition of very friendly hosts who were willing to show our kids all their animals and let them help with feeding them. Feeding the pigs was a real highlight! Tyson the pony was not feeling quite so accommodating towards giving a ride though. (However, that's horses for you - thanks for Charles for trying!) The house is in a quiet, peaceful area within a picturesque drive to the rest of the Wairarapa region. Would recommend them as a good value place to stay in what can be an expensive area (especially if you have a couple of young children). Thanks again Charles and Annette.

Response from Charles And Annette:
It was our pleasure. Having children to stay who enjoy the rural life, and who are so very well behaved, and interesting adult company, is what makes hosting enjoyable. Susan, Jerome & family are delightful and we hope to see them again. Hopefully Tyson will be more cooperative next time. He must have been having a bad hair day.

Just perfect! I stayed with Charles and Annette for two nights. The couple are excellent hosts as well as both being lovely, interesting, caring and kind. I thoroughly enjoyed my time there. The property is spacious and has gorgeous views. My accommodation was very comfortable in every way. I fell in love with their animals: Waggs, the loveliest, respectful and snuggly dog; Brunty, a friendly and adorable pig; Classic, a miniature stallion who is as soft as a marshmallow; Tyson, a wise, friendly, lovely Welsh pony; Mr pig, loved a good scratch and some love (also helped exfoliate my hands :)); and all the feathered girls and their man cruising around doing their thing.
