  • Description

    Description

    Small Equestrian property and farm located approx 40mins south of Christhchurch. Ski fields approx 60mins drive, centrally located to many great places . Looking to provide accomodation in my older but warm character home and good home cooked meals in exchange for help. I live in the a rural area so their is the opportunity to experience different types of farming if wished. As well as horses I also have two dogs and a couple of farm cats so it will help if you are a animal lover. I enjoy sharing my home and this great country with visitors. I can accomodate 1 -2 people or couples. Suitable for hardworking people with commonsense and a sense of humour.
