Pricing - our nightly rate includes two guests. Additional guests cost $20 extra, each, per night (except babies). The availability checker will confirm your dates and the nightly rate.
Max adults - the Farm Cottage sleeps up to six + a baby, but is best enjoyed by up to four adults in its two bedrooms, plus up to three children + a baby! (We've learnt this through experience - the problems mainly come self-catering in the kitchen and sharing the bathroom and hot water) - But its up to you... We’re trying to be honest!
FREE entry to Kaikoura Farm Park - We offer FREE access to our on-site Animal Farm Park (during normal opening hours) AND as a bonus, your family are welcome to enjoy EXCLUSIVE access to our early morning animal feeding (approx: 8:15am), where you can help feed our 100+ animals. (All the animals gather round, it's chaos, only takes about twenty minutes, but amazing to see!)
FREE pony ride - Small children are welcome to enjoy a FREE daily ride on a pony (during Farm Park opening hours).
Wheelchair access - The Farm Cottage, its garden and our Farm Park are flat and mostly on one level, with the following exceptions: One doorway is too small (lounge to kitchen - there's another route which is ok!) There's one small step down to the bathroom and toilet. One wheelchair family had a special chair for showers which didn't fit through the shower door, despite it being a fairly large shower unit! Obviously, the gardens and our Farm Park get wet and muddy after rain, which would hamper progress in a wheelchair - we don't have many prepared (sealed) paths - sorry!
Babies - We don’t charge for non-walking babies. If your child is walking there is a $20 per night charge = we think this is fair, because they will be using the facilities of the cottage, using a bed, the garden, and enjoying the animals in the Farm Park.
The cottage includes: a porta-cot (PLEASE let us know if you need bedding); high chair and a portable changing unit with bath (you're welcome to bring/use your own if you prefer). Please note: Kaikoura's recycling service charges to dispose of baby nappies/diepers. We’d appreciate it if you took these away with you - thanks.
Dogs - you can bring you dog with you, but there are a couple of things to think through... We have 100+ animals in our Farm Park, and some of them free range roam the site. Your dog mustn't be the chase and hassle type. Also, we've two collie dogs ourselves, so yours must accept other strange dogs easily! Some cottage guests ask whether dogs have been in the rental cottage, so we don't allow dogs inside - sorry! There's a medium sized dog kennel and run, in the cottage garden which you're welcome to use.
