My partner and I own a 50 hectare lifestyle farm in Cambrians about 35 minutes from Alexandra, 1.5h from Queenstown and Wanaka and 10 minutes from St Bathan. The little settlement of Cambrians is very beautiful and reflects the history of the area. We have 6 horses, 2 donkeys and a few cows as well as 2 dogs.
