I can highly recommend the trip over and dinner at Walter Peak High Country Farm. The food was unequalled, the service friendly and efficient and the after dinner show a real treat.
We enjoyed the entire experience, from the moment we boarded the steam ship we felt transported back in time. The dining farm buildings and gardens are beautiful and have been lovingly maintained. The meal offered a large range of choices and catered for people with special dietary requirements (I am gluten free). Most amazing desserts I have ever had!!!
The cruise across the lake on the steamboat was relaxing and comfortable. The buffet meal had a wide selection of fish/meats, salads and vegetables plus lovely desserrs and there was ample to choose from - certainly did not leave the table hungry. We enjoyed the sheep show and then we returned over the lake under the starry skies - a good evening - a tour which was good value for money
Excellent trip which I would highly recommend. Apart from the wonderful views from the ship the Information given and sheep shearing demonstration was very interesting. Dinner was excellent with good choice and quality of food.
Booked via viator day before cruise on arrival reception could not find us, boat waiting to go, thank you to the guy who said hop on we will sort this as for a moment I thought we were not going to be allowed on unless as reception suggested they took our credit card details again, sorted before arrival at destination. Really loved this, steam boat history and engineering amazing, scenic ride across, gentle and timeless with accompanying piano. Do wander to front of boat to find info and look at engines. Don't take BYO on board, we did, and were told not permitted. The meal was super, better than expected, absolutely excellent, would highly recommend as such a high standard but be prepared to wait a while to be invited to start - plenty of time to enjoy all though so no rush required, the shearing... well we are well used to, but was a good demo by an interested guide.
It's a nice cruise and the farm tour is recommended. Buffet was justified with lost of choices especially the desert should not be missed.
