We were on our way to Nelson and need a stop over as our ferry got in later. We were just planning to pop in, sleep and head out. We were warmly greeted when checking in and felt very welcome (warm muffins go a long way). After arriving, we considered staying another night to explore the area, but the timing...

A real family run "down home" place to stay. The kids will love it because of the animals--trampoline-swings and soft grass (we sure did). Walk the cross meadow walk for the waterfall (understated) but stay for the glow worms--wow! What a show once dark and possible to get up close for macro photos. A much maligned but super cute "possum"...

All of the resources we used were clean. We borrowed cutlery, pans and bedding. The couple that run the holiday park are really friendly and helpful, even giving us advice for Nelson too when we checked out. When we checked in we got a banana muffin, which was really tasty! There is a glow worm track that is amazing and...

What a great place to stop on our way around the top of the South Island. We heard about it at the information office in Picton. The welcome given on arrival would take a bit of beating. Hot muffins and free wifi. The ablution block was kept very clean and tidy. There were over 20 others there but everything seemed...

Extremely helpful female owner who was happy to answer any questions. Facilities were good, but a few too many flies buzzing about the kitchen! Was very quiet the night we stayed in our campervan maybe only 4 other vans. We were greeted to a lovely hot muffin each and some animal feed for the goats and sheep. Such a wonderful...

Great hosts, outstanding set up for families on holiday and well suited for bike backers. The motel rooms are great for a family. The holiday farm is well situated and in close proximity the the pub at Linkwater.

Barbara and Chris were great hosts after our team cycling 110 kms and climbing 2200 metres. It fantastic to have accommodation and facilities that helped us to prepared for the next day. Muffins, hot showers, laundry and quiet location plus the extras of a pickup from dinner. I wish our stay could have been longer. A big thank you to...

The accommodation and facilities at Smiths Farm are superb and were perfect for four of us after a day of hard cycling ending in wind and rain - the muffins on our arrival made the day!

We stayed two nights at Smiths Farm Holiday Park and we had a wonderful time. We felt very welcome. The holiday park is 30 minutes from Picton, so a perfect stop before jumping on the ferry. For tents, there is a large open space surrounded by trees. The price of 16$ per person is very fair. The amenities were always...
