Small cosy farm near Wellington, New Zealand



 Hospedagem min. solicitada: Sem período mínimo



  • Descrição


    A cowshed and a cottage- without the milking.....We are a busy Christian family of 6 (4 under 9 years of age) living on a small cosy farm with a big attitude. We share this with a friendly horse, golden retriever, 3 chickens, 11 sheep plus lambs and 5 cows. Lots of birdlife and a few trains!!!

    We find it hard to have hobbies and are asking for a hand as the farm does take up a lot of our time. Can you help us? Childcare, gardening, wood , DIY ,home brewing or helping us finish the separate cottage you would be staying in.
    Mum Emma and Dad Ryan have travelled a lot and would love to open up our farm and Otaki to those who can work honestly and rest quietly.

    The partly renovated shearers cottage needs some finishing work but everything works and it is away from our noisy cheeky children. We are in the process of furnishing the cottage so please enjoy the process as we are. We now have unlimited Internet to the cottage!!

    We are meat eaters and would find it hard to provide for other tastes. Cooking could be done separately with a different arrangement so please ask .If you provide your own food we usually ask for four hours work a day. We can provide food in return for 5 hours a day of work which sometimes includes your own cooking. This is just because we are a busy family and are unable to have you over for a meal every night. Please read our reviews as this seems to work for all and is fair and reasonable.

    We are also need those staying to be able to conserve water during summer as our supply is rain water. This is filtered and UV cleaned.

    While we would love a bit of work done to help us our aim is to give you a truly family kiwi experience. Our farm is 5 minutes' drive from Otaki centre and 10 minutes to the beach. Close to rail and the bus stop. We could even pick you up if this helps. God bless.
