Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful place. We thoroughly enjoyed our short stay. The house is gorgeous with amazing views, and the pizza oven is a real treat. We couldn't recommend staying at this AirBnB more!

What a wonderful stay! Cosy and charming spot and lots of things to do! Our only wish was that we had not planned any external adventures and could stay the whole time without leaving! Would love to come back for a week or two! A magical spot in the woods and everything we needed for rest and relaxation. So much fun for the kids to explore, they just loved it too x thank you for sharing your beautiful space in the world :-)

What a fantastic place to stay and relax. If you want to really get away from it all and stay in a magic forest then go to Wander Lodge. You will leave feeling entranced and wanting to come back. It's well placed at the gateway to ski fields and not too far from Christchurch. Very family orientated and safe.

We opened the large farm gate and entered an enchanted wonderland. Both kids darted off in opposite directions to explore all the fun surprises on the property. I headed for the gorgeous cottage. So happy to find a beautiful, fresh and clean interior stocked with all the mod-cons we needed and warmed by a lovely wood fire. This place is just delightful in every way. Obviously built with love and thought. What a privelege to share it for a few days.

One, not to miss! We loved our 2 nights here, and definitely don't go for less than two nights. We travelled just with our dog, who had an absolute blast - 5 acres and a water race - doggie heaven! Fantastic place for children but I don't want to spoil the many surprises by itemising them; forget technology for a bit and get out into the outdoors :) Highly recommend!

A night stay at Wonder Lindge was great. This place is really meant for people who really want to spent some time with the natures. Spoted some meteors when I was there. This not a place for those who cannot survive with wifi/internet connetion ;)
