Richard and Sarah Burdon have opened up their home for you to soak up this unique kiwi experience. They offer you a glimpse into their interesting daily routine, an insight into the comings and goings of the farm in operation, a beautiful lunch and a tour round the landscaped garden.

All of this is enjoyed in a family environment with their two children, Georgie and Charlie, and the dogs, Forrest and Lulu, providing some additional, usually unanticipated, fun. Glen Dene Station has been in the Burdon family for three generations.
