The cottage is so warm and clean. Janet even turned on all the heaters for us before we arrive. Janet and Bruce are very kind. Our kids enjoyed the little tour with them, they were so happy to pet the baby lamb, and got the chance to meet the mother lamb 'matty'. We will definitely go stay there again. Highly recommend from us.

The stay in Janet's place was very pleasant. Janet and Bruce couple very very kind, helpful guiding us through places nearby and answering all our questions very kindly. The house itself is very great filled with all comfort and board games to spend the time with. I really loved staying here and I'm not good at describing how awesome our stay was, but will do it again if I had to visit the place.

Overall the house was Great even with no TV or Internet connection, Although I could pick up service through my Phone, The 3 children didn't seem to mind either which was a worry when booking the house after knowing how they are glued to their phones normally. We only met Janet when we arrived, She was very friendly nd helpful, We wish them all the best for the future, Awesome set up they have.

We stayed for two nights in the last week of April.. The hospitality of our host was just too good... Janet and Bruce even guided us for the local sightseeings and they were excellent.. we had a great bond with the bigger family on the farm.. The cottage is well built and a great place for two couples or small families... We just loved the place.. i have no further words ...

We really enjoyed our stay at the farm cottage. It's a lovely spot to wind down after a busy day in Rotorua and to have a glass on the veranda or in front of the fire. No TV which was a real treat. The beds are really comfy too. You'll be staying in the country but just a short drive from shops and another 10mins from Rotorua. A great base for exploring the region. Janet and Bruce were great hosts and looked after us well. The kids loved having the cows and sheep literally outside the kitchen window. You can spend time just walking around the farm too. Given the chance, we'd love to stay again.
