Two modern self contained farmstay cottages sleeping up to five persons per B&B cottage, with full kitchen facilities, are available for families and couples looking for some time out. 

All guests receive a free one hour alpaca farm tour (worth NZ$40 per person) and the opportunity to get up close and friendly with the alpacas – and lead an alpaca along the laneway. During the birthing season, guests will see baby Alpaca (Cria) in the paddocks and may even see a live birth. The tour is a real highlight for our guests.

Book with Us

Great Family

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. Close to Lacebark function and wedding centre.

Alpaca Farm Tour

The 60 minute Farm Tour is very hands on. Visitors will be taken to a yard/pen where they can touch the alpacas, take an alpaca for walk or simply take lots of photographs.

Peace and Tranquility

No road noise here, abundant birdlife and the hum of the alpacas. Away from the city lights there is no light pollution so on a clear night you will enjoy a spectacular night sky.
