Peter and Linnie

Peter and Linnie look forward to welcoming you to your ‘home away from home’. 

We love meeting and hosting guests from all over the world and hearing about your travel experiences!  We know NZ ‘inside out’ so if you want any ideas to make your kiwi vacation totally wonderful, just ‘sing out’. Peter has a livestock trucking business and  a wealth of farming knowledge and experience of the NZ rural life.  Linnie has travelled extensively, from African safaris through to hiking the Inca Trail in Peru, exploring the Amazon, diving in Moorea,  discovering the mysterious Moais of Easter Island (Rapanui)and the fabulous Galapagos Islands.   USA is our favourite country to visit, with friends and family living in California. We recently travelled the USA by RV through America’s heartland and off the beaten track, and have toured throughout New Zealand many times  in our 10 metre motorhome appropriately named  ‘Lovin’ It’.

Gumboots in many sizes

Here at Amberfields we raise nurse cows and calves, and our hereford bull Baxter is the head of our herd. All our cattle may be hand fed and enjoy human contact and attention. Gumboots (we have quite a range) are provided for farm walks, romantic strolls or picnics and you are welcome to join in any farm activities if you wish.  The tractor is old but she goes, our chickens provide beautiful free range eggs daily and Spike the cat often sleeps in their coop.

If staying more than one night (special rate for 2 or more nights) you may want a unique one-off side trip or something really ‘different’ or perhaps adventurous sounds appealing to you (black water rafting at Waitomo can be personally recommended!).  A few ideas are listed on our Attractions page.   Just tell us what’s on your bucket list and where we can pull the right strings, we will!

On our 3 month motorhome trip across USA we especially enjoyed meeting the locals and visiting some of the vast farming areas far off the tourist routes.  Having guests stay with us who also have an interest in any aspect of farming delights us.
