Meet Your Valley Views Glamping Hosts

Patrick and Amber Tyrrell are proud to be your hosts and the owners of Valley Views.  Patrick grew up on a farm in the Eastern Cape of South Africa. Amber grew up on a farm just down the road from Valley Views, right here in the Waitaki Valley. The two met during their overseas adventures, while working on a Moshav in the desert in Israel. After further travels they married and settled in New Zealand.

Amber And Patrick’s Journey

Since marrying in 1995, Amber and Patrick have 4 lovely children, now between the ages of 13 and 20. They chose to live out this stage of their life on a 40 hectare farm in the hills below Mount Domett in the Waitaki Valley, where they built an off-the-grid barnhouse. They farm beef cattle in conjunction with Amber’s mother who owns the neighbouring farm. Both farms are run using holistic methods of farming.

How Valley Views Glamping Was Conceived

Of all of their travels around the world, the best and most memorable accommodation experience Amber and Patrick had was staying in a glamping safari tent on a game farm in South Africa. They were inspired to bring those ideas back to New Zealand, and create a sanctuary for travellers on their beautiful farm.

Environmentally Conscious

Amber and Patrick have endeavoured to make as little impact on the environment as possible by choosing sustainable materials and eco-products wherever they can. Just one of the ways they show their dedication to the environment is by turning the septic tank into a worm farm!
