A working organic market garden/lifestyle block in the Ida Valley, Central Otago. Stunning scenery, Lord of the Rings location for Rohan. 2 Hours from Queenstown or Wanaka, for skiing. Bit quirky, peaceful, lots of pets, horse riding, fishing, Lord of the Rings tour and home cooked meals all available upon request. Very REAL! Not flash, our pet sheep, horses and cow love cuddles. So do the dog and cats. Plenty of lovely cafes, pubs and wineries in the area!

This is a friendly homely house in a quiet rural setting, surrounded by fields, animals and extensive hilly and rocky ranges. It is unpretentious and you are made to feel part of a home rather than an hotel. Airs and graces are not to be worn -just settle down and relax

Read Gilly’s offer. Understand and accept that this is a hard working family - two legged and four legged - in an old fashioned home. Doing and loving so much can be chaotic but there’s a lot of peace, tranquility and welcome too if you’re minded.
