We had a great stay thanks Gay. You are a very welcoming host, and we loved our room, the bed was so comfortable. Your house is charming, very English cottage style, especially loved the latch doors and bay windows! Would love to come back to stay, next time hope to bring the kids, they would love it!

It was great staying at Ridgewood Farm. The rooms, the gardens, everything was so lovely we wish we could have stayed longer and relaxed in that lovely peaceful atmosphere. Raja was a delightful and colourful addition to the garden. It was nice talking to you as well Gay and hope something positive has materialized from your efforts. We look forward to visting again and will certainly recommend you to any friends going that way. rgds Durriya

Way out in the countryside we found Gaye's Shang-ri-la. We are happy to have had a glimpse into it and would gladly have stayed another month or two. Our friendly and life-wise hostess has made our short stay a long-lasting memory.

A very pretty setting and a memorable way to spend John's 40th birthday! The chickens escorting us off the premises will take a bit of beating too.

It has been a lovely stay. The kids liked the farm and the animals. Nathalie especially was fond of collecting eggs! Thank you very much for the lovely food. Greetings from Germany.

Loved the attention to detail!. The bathroom in particular made us feel welcome to sample the great range of specialist products - very generous! And the doors! Apart from ordinarily loving wood, the fact that these doors had wooden latches and locking was an absolute gem. We'll be back.

What a lovely find. This place is a little piece of paradise. A beautiful old villa surrounded by lots of farm animals and native bush. The service is wonderful and friendly in that good old kiwi way. I recommend this place to all. If you are just passing through or in need of solitude, this is the perfect place for it.

We had a wonderful rest Really enjoyed the lovely environment waking to the sound of magpies, ducks, peacocks, lambs and birds singing and rooster crowing. This rekindled many memories of earlier days Thanks Gay for rescuing us and for the wonderful hospitality and super breakfast.

During our travel around NZ we wanted to spent one night at a Farm B & B. Choosing Ridgewood was an outstanding choice. The entire facility is charming and the host Gay was delightful. Her tour of the farm was very informative explaining how the farm functions.We are definatly recommending Ridgewood to our friends, an outstanding choice

Having had the pleasure of staying at this delightful homestead on numerous occasions, I always look forward to the next time with a certain amount of warm anticipation. It is always fullfilled and exceeded. From the moment you arrive til the moment you leave, the outside world does not exist.Relaxation for soul, mind and body. Totally recommended!
