    Chris and Elaine are a pair of sweet couple. I love the rustic feel of the farm and how Chris spent so much time explaining to us about the farm and recounting stories of his journey. His farm is also located near other towns and restaurants.

    Stayed here on our first night after a red-eye flight to have a rest before our campervan tour. The cottage is not fancy but cozy. One room connects to the living room via the bathroom, and there are 2 single beds located next to the dining room with no door - worked okay for my twin girls. The highlight of the stay was really the farm tour. We saw different breeds of rabbits, chickens, pigs, sheep, alpacas.. Chris was super friendly and my girls totally enjoyed the tour. Was a great start to our holiday!

    We spent our last night in New Zealand during our roadtrip from Queenstown to Christchurch in Warwickz Farm. At first I booked a hotel in Christchurch, but when I found this farm stay very close to Christchurch (only 35-40mins drive), I decide to cancel the hotel (with hesitation from my husband children staying in a farm). Fortunately, when I first arrived here, I knew I made a right decision. I recommend for tourists in South Island who want to have farm tour or experience farm stay, you should stay in Warwickz Farm, instead of staying at hotel or only visit farm tour (which you may did not get detailed explanation on the animals). He can give you very detailed farm tour of his rare breed animals (alpacas, sheeps, goats, unique horses+donkey, unusual pigs, chickens from various breeds, goose with curly feathers, guinea pigs, Enderby rabbit and other various rabbits), letting you pat and encounter with the animals, and he did not limit the tour time (as long as not clash with his schedule)! When we arrived, they put a welcome sign with my name on it at their gate (which is very sweet). I found the farm is large, unlike the farm in farm tour I had previously visit in South Island. The red barn (our accomodation) itself is very clean and homy, surrounded by cute and healthy animals, next to alpacas. There is a bathroom, kitchenette (microwave, kitchen sink, and toaster), and a dining room where also displaying Elaine's wool handcraft from alpacas/sheeps. Chris (the owner) is very kind, my 3 y.o son and my 12mths baby are very excited with the animals, so he pick a large branch of willow tree so my son and I can feed the alpacas with willow leaves during the afternoon-evening. He also very flexible in determining our farm tour schedule. In the morning Chris provide us with very nice and simple breakfast (we really like the toast bread and yoghurt). While waiting the farm tour we can enjoy playing with the horses, alpacas, chickens, and pigs near the barn. The farm tour itself is amazing! Chris give us private tour and he didn't limit the tour duration, because he told us he can talk about animals as long as we want (as long as he did not have another schedule of course :) ). During the tour he explain one by one of his rare-breed animals, their names, and let us to have encounter with the animals. He also show us how he hypnotize the chicken to sleep! This is a very recommended place to have farm tour and creating farm experience for families. My husband who did not like animals too much at the end of our staying agree that our stay there is very great experience and very worth the money. The only thing I regret is I did not buy Chris' book (I don't know that I actually can buy it). Hopefully I can visit it again someday.
