Our Christchurch Farmstay Accommodation

The multi-award winning Silverstream Alpaca Stud offers two luxurious self-contained farm-stay cottages on a Bed and Breakfast basis. Our major point of difference is the inclusion of an escorted 45 minute  farm tour to see and feed the alpacas. By staying at Silverstream Alpaca Stud, we include the farm tour for free – that is a $40 saving per person.

The cottages sleep a total of five guests per cottage and both cottages are identical apart from the décor.

There are two bedrooms – one bedroom has a Queen bed and the other bedroom has two single beds and a rollaway can be supplied for a fifth person.

The farm-stay cottages include a bathroom, lounge, modern kitchen and a carport. The kitchens have just been renovated and include an electric hobs, microwave, dishwasher, fridge, rice cooker, toaster, electric jug, cutlery and crockery.

Heating is from a commercial heat pump located in the lounge and there are also electric blankets on every bed. The heat pump also acts as an air conditioner in the summer months. We can also supply an electric fan if required.

Tea, coffee, sugar and milk are supplied free of charge.

Also included in the cottages are new smart TV’s, board games, a safe for protecting your valuables, an iron and ironing board, toiletries and extra blankets and pillows for your added comfort

The farm stay accommodation opens out onto a patio that overlooks the alpacas housed in the nearby paddocks. Comfortable deck chairs are located on the patio so that you can soak up the sun while you admire the alpacas.
