    Had an absolutely amazing time. From arriving at the farm to leaving it was a great experience. Feeding the farm animals was such fun and being able to pat and learn about all of them a little was really enjoyable. The afternoon tea was really good and plenty to eat and more kept coming out. Was very nice to warm up again before going back out into the cold weather.

    The journey to Walter Peak Station on the Earnslaw was lovely, as always as we have done this journey about 3 times before over the years. It wasn't too crowded and the staff were happy and helpful. It was a very nice touch to have live music on board with a pianist and grand piano. The guide for the farm tour was informative, but it felt rushed. Sitting at the homestead enjoying afternoon tea was a highlight. Our eldest son opted to do a horse trek instead of the farm tour. He said the views were spectacular, and the horses and guide were relaxed and excellent.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our lovely day out to Walter Peak on the beautiful Earnslaw. We loved to see and feed the animals and follow their behaviour, it was such fun. Our farm guide was wonderful and his love of animals was very clear. He was a great guide and had a good sense of humour. We enjoyed every minute, even in the rain.
