Silverstream Alpaca Stud has a magical setting with sweeping lawns and gardens set on a beautiful stream boundary with the loveable award winning alpacas, quietly grazing in nearby fields.
Two modern self contained farmstay cottages sleeping up to five persons per B&B cottage, with full kitchen facilities, are available for families and couples looking for some time out.
All guests receive a farm tour and the opportunity to get up close and friendly with the alpacas – and lead an alpaca along the laneway. During the birthing season, guests will see baby Alpaca (Cria) in the paddocks and may even see a live birth. The tour is a real highlight for our guests.
Our first Cria for the season arrived at the beginning of December and there are many more expected to arrive over the next few weeks. Book with us and see these bundles of energy dancing around the paddocks. They really are delightful.
Your hosts Kit & Sheryl will ensure your stay at Silverstream is both relaxing, entertaining and educational. We have travelled the world many times and have spent 30 years in tourism - maybe we can help you with your New Zealand travel plans.
Alpacas have a natural curiosity towards children and the children simply love them with their teddy bear good looks and their soft hum for communication.
No road noise here and the only commotion is the busy Milky Way up above. See the Southern Cross or Venus – it is there for you to see …
The 30 minute Farm Tour is very hands on. Visitors will be taken to a yard/pen where they can touch the alpacas, take an alpaca for walk or simply take lots of photographs.
