By far the most popular hosted farm accommodation, this is your typical working farm varying in size from 20 acres to over 1,000 acres, often running upwards of several thousand sheep. A number of farms may have a combination of sheep, cattle, deer, goats, and cereal crops. In addition, there are an increasing number of dairy farms, orchards, vineyards and those properties involved in horticulture.
Rural Holidays NZ Ltd offers smaller, specialised accommodation at properties of between a few acres and
up to 20 acres, they are located close to major cities, towns and resorts. Often country home hosts are semi retired farmers or professional people enjoying a country lifestyle.
We, at Rural Holidays NZ Ltd, have carefully chosen a limited number of host homes in the major cities, towns and resorts of New Zealand that provide superb accommodation and hospitality. Accommodation options include bed and breakfast. Dinner can be included but must be pre booked.
Included in every Rural Holidays NZ Ltd stay is a delicious three course dinner, a warm, comfortable bed and your choice of a cooked or continental breakfast.
Bed and breakfast packages are not an option when being farm hosted, as cafes and food outlets are often many kilometres (miles) away and often difficult to find.
Farm hosting and farm stays packages always include dinner.
