Visitor's Comments
Coming here was one of our dreams come true,  Thank you for your wonderful hospitality and the amazing experiences we had on beautiful Beaumont Station.  The trekking and mustering was so what I had hoped for.  Love that Jack - he is very special.  Wee Cody too and all the 'gang' at Beaumont.  We will definately be back to do more with you Lynn.  You are magic - Struan too.  We had a great time which we will never forget.

Many, many thanks for your warm hospitality - real southern folk!  Lynn and Struan you are true kiwis!  The experience of the muster was just what we had anticipated and more.  Amazing scenery, wild and engaged, it was wonderful to share it with my daughter, daughter inlaw and cousin.  And the fact that it was a milestone birthday surprise made it all the more special.  Loved the horses who took care of us all and the dogs who saved hours of extra work.  We will be back.  Thank you so much.

Your warmth and hospitality made our stay so special!  We loved the fabulous dinner, our horseback ride with Lynn and our 4WD tour with Struan.  This was the finale of our 3 weeks in New Zealand, it couldn't have been better.  Thank you so much.

This was the trip of Mum's dreams which exceeded all our expectations.  Between the hospitality, the horses, the land and all the glorious memories we've made, it has truly been a dream come true.  Thanks Minty's and Martha for all your accommodations so that we could enjoy every second of this incredible place.  We will always remember the 'wee advertures' and your kindness.  All the best.

We hoped this would be the highlight of an amazing trip - but this exceeded all expectations, a truly memorable stay - wonderful people, amazing horses and a location to beat anywhere in the world.  Will not forget the last 4 days.  Thank you Lynn for everything.

A memorable 4 days at Beaumont.  Horseback is such a great way to see your beautiful and diverse scenery.  Without Sarge I would never have reached the top of those hills!  Good weather, good company and good horses.  And the added bonus of the excitement of today's 'lamb sale'.  Bet Struan sleeps well tonight.  Thank you all - especially Lynn and Martha - and a hug for a big hearted little dog Cody.

Thankyou for the most amazing week, I have enjoyed every day and all the new experiences, especially the mustering.  Barretts Hut was also one of my highlights, such a tranquil and calm place (and the stars).  This week was just what I needed after a maniac 3 weeks travelling so thank you!  Thank you for the wonderful hospitality and food!  I will recommend you to all my friends in the UK and hopefully will come back one day.  Thanks again.

I'm really thankful for the time at your lovely home.  I enjoyed your kindness, your caring, the warmth of your family and your beautiful overwhelming landscape.  Thank you for the night at your incredible hut, the ride in the rain and everything else.  I've never been so quiet and wasn't so relaxed for a long time and I'll take brilliant new memories back home.  Thank you.

Thankyou Lynn for a wonderful week that surpassed all my expectations.  The views, the horses; your company; your food; Struan and your hospitality, generosity and kindness; the dogs; the cottage and huts; and the way you developed my riding skills.  I'm sure I've missed things - but everything has been fabulous and its purely down to you and Struan.  I shall be recommending you as far and wide as I can.  I wish you both all the best.  PS  And what fabulous weather!  That was just unbelievably good luck.

It's hard to describe how much we've enjoyed ourselves over the past few days.  Great company, wonderful food and an awesome experience we will never forget.  Thank you for a fantastic family holiday we will always cherish.  The best birthday present ever.

To our wonderful hosts who gave us a holiday of a lifetime.  Your kindness, care, hospitality and cooking was tremendous.  To Struan who took us on the ATV up, down across mountains and streams, thank you for a most exciting time for 2 old Auckland 'Jafa's'.  Many, many thanks.  Your wonderful old cottage, history and farm life stories all add up to a wonderful holiday.  Thank you Lynn and Struan for making it so magical.
Jocelyn and Paul Boswell, Auckland NZ

There are many horse trekking in NZ - but I don't think anyone could be better than Beaumont farm.  We are so very pleased with everything - amazing views, wonderful horses and excellent food.  And of course the lovely family Lynn, Struan and Glen who let us know about how it is to be a farmer here in NZ.  Thank you so very much!

Wow, the experience of  a lifetime!  We can't begin to express how much we loved this visit to Beaumont Station!  Where do we start?  The mustering, the meals, Cody, Nan, Storm, Jack, Chipper, Amicho!  And of course Lynn Struan, Glen and Martha.  Thank you so much for your genuine sharing of your life, work and wonderful country.  Hospitality plus!  We will think of you often, come to Arizona!  All our best to you.
Doug and Debbie Adamson, Gilber, Arizona, USA

What a unique and wonderful experience!!!  Lynn, Struan, Martha and Glen were outstanding hosts.  The herding (mustering) of sheep was a super treat for the ladies in our group.  The guys went to Invercargill and got a guided tour by Struan.  Lynn is one of the best cooks I have ever had the pleasure to meet.  Last but not least, having owned Jack Russell's my man Cody was out of sight.  If he could fit in my suitcase he would be on his way to Texas.
Many thanks Bob and Pat, Magnolia, Texas, USA

There is so much to say in such a short time and all I can say is that my time here with the Minty family has been truly amazing, everything from start to finish has been so much more than expected, it's all been 110%.  You guys should be very proud of what you have.  You're always welcome to come to mine.
Many thanks Ben Turner, Darking Surrey, UK
