We live in a tranquil setting at the foothills at Oxford. We farm cattle and a small flock of sheep, also we have Alpaca's, miniature horses,chickens,ducks,pigs, and milking cows. We are on the inland scenic route 72 between Rangiora and State Highway 73 (to the West Coast, Lake Tekapo, Hanmer Springs and Kaikoura). Within a few minutes drive there is salmon & trout fishing, easy walks and tramps at Mt Oxford, Mt Richardson, Mt Thomas, and many bush walks also nearby.Horse trekking can be arranged. Mountain biking at the Wharfdale track offers one of the best in the South Island. Ski fields within 1-1/2 hrs drive.On the farm we grow all our own food with no sprays.

Pam and Michael were excellent hosts . We were served tea and coffee and cakes when we arrived and warmly welcomed. Our rooms were spacious and the beds comfortable. The property is a small farm and a number of animals around when made the stay interesting.

We chose this as somewhere close to Christchurch after landing in NZ. Oxford is maybe and easy 45 minute easy drive from the airport with Mingary on the outskirts of the town - definitely a rural location. A very warm welcome from Pam and Mike and a very comfortable room.

"Both rooms would be equal - lovey and quiet and well presented"
"All three rooms were delightful"
"All the rooms seem to have similar sizes, large enough for two to move about comfortably. I liked our room very much which is the Lavendar room."
