This was a great place to stay for our last couple of days - out on the Banks Peninsula, on a 1,000 acre sheep farm with 2,000 sheep.  We stayed in a stargazer, a hut with a glass roof so you could look at the stars, whilst lying in bed - Andy thought this was very romantic!  It also had a fantastic view out across the sounds, as it was at the top of the hill, and mounted on stilts.  We also had a visitor, a peahen with 3 chicks, which slept on our balcony every night.

Hi Veronica & Jimmy
Thanks for the comment - yes the stargazer's hut was definitely something special - well it was for Esther - Andy didn't have his contacts in so couldn't see the stars v well that night!
We've put a picture of it on the blog so you could build one in your backgarden - probably not so good in England tho' with the clouds and street lights!
Sadly, we've only a week left now in NZ - then we're off to Bangkok.
Hope all's well in Vicarage Lane.
Love to Felix and Lucas

Re: Hello!
On second thoughts - think you must have one of these already - can you see the stars through the glass in your kitchen - or you could stick a piece of glass in the shed roof!!!
