About this listing

Holmes farm stay is located in a quiet rural setting with fantastic rural views. A modern self contained private room separate from the main house with en suite bathroom and kitchenette.
The room has wireless internet and TV.
Situated on a 560ha working sheep, beef and deer farm near the village of Woodbury, 10 mins drive from the popular tourist town of Geraldine. Geraldine is a lovely place to explore and is on the main route from Christchurch to Tekapo.

The space

The breakfast is not to be missed and will be placed in the farm stay prior to your arrival. Breakfast will include farm fresh eggs, home made muesli (contains gluten and nuts), fresh fruit, organic local yoghurt, milk, juice, toast and spreads, tea and coffee.
There is a small table and chairs outside the farm stay to enjoy breakfast in the sun if you wish.
The farm stay is well insulated with double glazed windows and good heating so is a cosy warm space to enjoy in comfort in winter.

Guest access

Guests are welcome to walk onto the farm so long as they check with the host first.
Guests are also welcome to explore the garden, its not very big so that won't take long!
Washing machine, clothes dryer or washing line are all available for use but please ask first.

Interaction with guests

Both Alister and I are normally in the main house or on the farm if you have any questions and I (Lyn) can also be contacted on my mobile phone.
We are happy to help.

Other things to note

We have a busy young family who may from time to time make a bit of noise, hopefully not too early in the morning or late at night!
We will be coming and going next to the farm stay as that is our access to the main house but we will certainly try to respect your privacy at all times.
As we are a working farm there will be noise (dogs, bikes, tractors, sheep, cattle, trucks) depending on activities on the farm.
Since the farm stay is attached to the garage you may hear the garage door being operated but we will try to keep this to a minimum while guests are staying.

We had a short but wonderful stay. The cottage was very comfortable, clean and warm. It was nice to stay in a farm setting...we even got to see calves being fed. We felt very welcome.

Had high expectations from reading the reviews and these were certainly met! Lyn and Alastair were lovely hosts. Very warm and happy to have a chat and make suggestions (ended up on a spontaneous snowboarding adventure at RoundHill). The room was warm and toasty, and had everything we needed. The bed was so comfortable and cozy, we didn't want to get out. It was beautiful at night, the stars are definitely worth a look from the quiet of their home! The breakfast provided was delicious and set us up for our travels the next day! Overall a great stay!

Lyn had to go out for a couple of hours, but she kept us very well informed, left the place unlocked, and arrived back soon after we arrived. When we said we would eat in, rather than going to Geraldine, she brought across a toastie maker. She was exceptionally friendly and welcoming. The place was very clean and warm ( The farm animals didn't seem as keen as we were on the fresh snow dump!)

Many thanks to Lyn for informing us about weather conditions (very unusual snow conditions from our drive from Wanaka). If she hadn't communicated days prior to our arrival, we wouldn't have been aware. We made is safely to her beautiful B&B in Woodbury and adored our lovely beds (two adults, one five year old), overall cleanliness and the breakfast was amazing - we love farm eggs. Lyn also recommended some nice dinner options in Geraldine (10 mins drive) and we had a beautiful dinner at the Village Inn. Thanks so much for a lovely stay. Highly recommended.

This airbnb is absolutely amazing!! Lyn is possibly the kindest and most accommodating person we have met. The farm stay was quiet, clean, spacious, and very comfy. The breakfast she provided for us was lovely! We would highly recommend this for anyone staying in the area. The only complaint that we could have, is that we weren't able to stay longer. Thank you Lyn!
