We had an amazing time at Tuki. Bedrooms very spacious, living area small but that's to be expected from an original shearers cottage. Hosts were fantastic, as it was a working farm kids were fascinated with animals. The owners took lots of time out to chat with them and show how things worked on the farm. They gave horse rides and let them watch sheep shearing. The fishing was an great experience for us especially when our catch was cooked up and served to us in the restaurant. Kids want to go back every year!
