"A slice of heaven. A place of rest. A peaceful haven. We were truely blessed. Fantastic Hosts."

This unique New Zealand farmstay is just 20 minutes north of Christchurch International Airport and 30 minutes from the city centre. Silverstream Alpaca Stud has a magical setting with sweeping lawns and gardens set on a beautiful stream boundary with the loveable alpacas, quietly grazing in nearby fields.
Excellent nearby fishing, golf, horseriding, shopping and wineries will ensure that you leave New Zealand with very fond memories and some new found friends.
Two modern self contained farmstay cottages sleeping up to five persons per cottage, with full kitchen facilities, are available for families and couples looking for some time out. All guests receive a farm tour and the opportunity to get up close and friendly with the alpacas – hold a baby alpaca (cria) or lead an alpaca along the laneway. The tour is a real highlight for our guests.
Your hosts Kit & Sheryl will ensure your stay at Silverstream is both relaxing, entertaining and educational. We have travelled the world many times and have spent 30 years in tourism - maybe we can help you with your New Zealand travel plans?
Silverstream Alpaca Stud Farm has a proven record in the field of alpacas. We are proud to boast of an elite herd of 200 alpacas chosen from the best genetic lines available in New Zealand, Australia and North America. Come and enjoy the friendly inquisitive nature of these wonderful animals, as you experience the Kiwi hospitality of your hosts, Kit & Sheryl.
Alpacas have a natural curiosity towards children and the children simply love them with their teddy bear good looks and their soft hum for communication.
No road noise here and the only commotion is the busy Milky Way up above. See the Southern Cross or Venus – it is there for you to see …
The Farm Tour takes about an hour and is very hands on. Visitors will be taken to a yard/pen where they can touch the alpacas, hold a cria (baby alpaca), take an alpaca for walk or simply take lots of photographs.
