我們很享受這邊的農莊生活,住宿環靜清幽,很喜歡主人的裝飾風格。我們受到熱情的招待,早餐的份量十足。並且很開心可以跟主人的寵物們玩,讓我們渡過很愉快的早晨。 We spent a relaxed and wonderful night here. The hosts are really nice and we had a BIG breakfast. The room are two floors which is quite big for the price. What surprised us is they have a lot of pets, and we really enjoyed to have time to play with Peter-the sheep, cats and the goat.

We thought we would try a B&B to see if we would like the experience. The first impression was not good as the house looks old and dated from the driveway, and smelt slightly musty on entry. However, we found the room and bedding very comfortable. The hospitality and helpful attitude of our hosts was impeccable. The breakfast was really...

A friend and I stayed two nights at Arden Country House. Faye and Geoff are incredibly welcoming and have a genuine heart to serve. Nothing is a problem for these two and they go the 'extra mile' in all they do. I felt completely relaxed and comfortable during my stay and loved the country setting. Beautiful home, beautiful people and...

Reminiscent of an old farm house back in the US, it is a very nice, homey place. A tad bit too old for my tastes with the occasional insect. The hosts, Geoff and Faye, were incredibly pleasant, wonderful, and helpful with recommending points of interest. The cooked breakfast and overall hospitality was second to none!

The B&B is run by a lovely couple, we had such lively and interesting discussions with them about the affairs of the world. The house is quaint and the house animals add to the country feel. There were 4 cats, 1 dog, 1 goat, 2 sheep and a number of chickens and at least one cockerel (who woke us up...

I stayed with Faye and Geoff back on May 18th while travelling the South Island for about 11 days. Geoff was very welcoming when I had pulled up the driveway and had showed me around. They even had tea waiting for me in my room upon my arrival. Both Faye and Geoff were absolutely lovely and I enjoyed my evening...

Even though I arrived very late (11PM), the proprietors were still waiting for me with my key and free wifi info, showed me to my room and even asked me when I would like breakfast served and what would I like to eat. Since I had just finished a long drive and a hectic two days, I was glad to...

Faye & Geoff made me so welcome in their lovely home that I was warmed on the inside from the minute I stepped in the door. I loved my stay here and would go back in a heartbeat! It's a real home from home 😊 This may be a little bit out of town, but it's so beautifully situated in...

This place has a great potential, but in reality is just a tourist trap. Rooms are basically nice looking, but dirt and dust is everywhere. Our blankets and towels were not fresh and washed (there were hairs on them and they were stinking i.e. from pets)! Rooms were very cold - they knew our arrival date and time and didn't...

Our lovely cosy country house is a beautiful and welcoming "home away from home" where you can relax and feel at home... Enter a place that is a new world version of a classic country farmhouse.

We invite you to soak up the rustic elegance of our living room, socializing with new friends and old, in front of the fire or finding that quiet spot to read a book, inside or outside in the warmth of the sun and the fresh country breeze. Or just relax overlooking the scenery of the pastures, hills, trees, and the animals which you can enjoy interacting with. At our place, you can enjoy the fresh air around ! A pleasant drive to Moeraki Boulders is only 42 minutes away and 30 minutes to the start of the Otago Peninsula, which is a great place to explore.
