Pen Y Bryn

Pen Y Bryn is something a bit different down the East Coast of the South Island. Away from a number of tourist routes, yet handy to the history of early Otago settlement and the wildlife of the Otago Peninsula, there is plenty to do and see in the area.

In the 1850s it was this area which saw the rapid colonisation of New Zealand, and later on when refrigeration arrived it became the gateway for meat export to England which formed the backbone of New Zealand's wealth until England joined the EU and effectively cut its colony off.  There are some superb icons of this time, from a period farm, historic buildings and a superb working flour mill which we can activate for you.

Just down the road are some penguins, and a bit further you have the Otago Peninsula which is a wildlife mecca with yellow eyed penguins, albatrosses, sea lions, fur seals and more.  Dunedin is also an interesting student town.  James and James are sophisticated hosts and the cooking is second to none in the country.
