The heartbeat of our homestay comes from our Christian world-view which aims to give guests a friendly, warm welcome in our beautiful environment. This is your chance to unwind and recharge. We can be a convenient stop-over between the Mackenzie country and Christchurch, or simply a quiet weekend away from the bustle of city life. Peel Forest Homestay provides accommodation in our large, child friendly farmhouse, and is a tranquil place surrounded in forest and full of warmth. We are situated very close to the native forest with its rich bird life, and there is easy access to many of the Peel Forest park walks from our house. We have recently been developing a native wetland in one of our paddocks, and are busy planting it in native trees and flaxes. Through our farm, we aim to be self-sufficient, and have a large vegetable garden and fruit and nut trees, as well as a few cows, sheep, horses, chooks and ducks. Most of the food we eat is produced by us in the garden and on the farm.

We spent three relaxing days experiencing the true rural area around Peel Forest, nestled at the foot of Mt Peel. We woke up at sunrise overlooking the native forest, listening to the bird songs. One of us slept outdoors on the balcony feeling very content being so close to

We stayed in the backpackers not the B&B. The backpackers is like a cross between a YHA in town and a DOC hut in the backcountry - all the best of both worlds. The farm(let) backs into the native bush of Peel Forest, with many of the original natives entwining into the farm

"The balcony is fantastic!"
"I wish I had known about the option of sleeping on the upstairs verandah before I settled into my downstairs room. My friend loved being awakened by the dawn chorus to a spectacular view of the sun on Mt. Peel. Joan H."
