Really nice family run campsite. Welcomed by warm muffins! There are some animals to feed dotted around the property (goat, sheep, rabbits) and the children were given a bag of animal food each to go off with - which was a lot of fun. Our powered site was spacious and had a hedge on one side - there are a...

Thank you for your lovely, thorough review. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us and that you had the time to try out the activities.

Stayed in a cabin here for 5 nights. The hosts are fantastic! We even got fresh muffins on arrival, such a lovely touch. From the holiday park, we got to visit the Queen Charlotte, Kenepura and Pelora sounds. Picton, Blenheim and Havelock are all reasonably close, so a perfect location, and very clean and tidy.There are a few walks closeby,...

Thank you for taking the time to review us...we really appreciate it. Yes, the glow worms are superb at present and it is a joy to have them on the farm. If there's still an ounce of child in anyone's heart, these little creatures should bring the full child forth!!Thanks again and all the very best for 2017. Kind Regards,...

We stayed here for five nights during the busy Christmas period. This family farm is great as none of the campsites are cramped. You are spoiled with very friendly hosts, a muffin on arrival, clean facilities, trampoline, big field for games, food for animal feeding, walk to waterfall, glow worms, trees for shelter. Very close to Anakiwa and the beautiful...

We stayed here for two nights in our campervan and while the park is small there is lots to do! Our daughter loved to feed the goats and jump on the trampoline! It is close to havelock where you can have nice green mussels. We used this as our gateway to the malborough wine region! The hosts are also very...

Thank you for your lovely review Karen. It was a pleasure to host you and your family in the park and we always love to see how children interact with the animals.

We arrived in Picton at night but our rented car was not able to be picked up, however the farm owner was super nice and picked us up from the ferry terminal. The Smiths farm is so far the best experience we had in NZ. Warm and cozy bed! Good view from the farm.

The owners are just about the nicest people on the planet. Got a home baked muffin at reception. Stay with these guys, do the glow-worm walk, feed the sheep, you won't regret it. Price is decent, too.

We stayed here for one night as part of our self-guided tour of New Zealand. The email communication we received when we initially booked was very friendly and helpful; this approach continued on our arrival - nothing was too much trouble - and the home-made muffins were appreciated. Our family sized lodge had a double bed (with a single above...

Thank you for your review: we appreciate the time and effort you have put into it. Sadly, when you visited, NZ was being hit by the worst Spring in over 20 years and the rain was constant, causing flooding everywhere. I only wish I had a Harry Potter wand to wish away the rain and bring sunshine for all of...

Stayed here for one night in October. The park is in a picturesque spot and the owners are extremely helpful and friendly. We had a few laughs feeding the sheep and goat and really enjoyed our walk through the cow's paddock to see the waterfall and glow worms. Really lovely spot to stay.

Thank you! We enjoyed hosting you in the park and are pleased that you enjoyed the animals! Sometimes we find that adults are reluctant to do things like feed the pets but they have so much fun when they actually do it and it's good for the soul!
