Jane and Peter Race

We married in 1984 and have two children and now two gorgeous grandchildren.

We first started in business in the early nineties. Firstly with a Contract Shearing Run then progressed to a 7 Day Dairy in Timaru. During this time Peter continued to work as a Slaughterman at Alliance Meats.

After 30 years at the Meat Works we decided on a Full Time Business and purchased the Fairlie Hotel in 2003. Following on 2 years later purchased the Top Hut Bar and Bistro in Twizel. After this we had a short break then Managed the Ocean Beach Hotel in Dunedin including 10 Motel Units. Dunedin was followed by the purchase of Twizel Holiday Park in 2011. 5 years later after refurbishing the Park we had another break after which we purchased Heartland Lodge in 2017.

Peters interests include gardening, landscaping, horse racing, shearing, walking, cycling, traveling and of course family. During the past 40 years Peter was a Blade Shearer, working in the Mackenzie Country, winning many New Zealand Titles and represented New Zealand on numerous occasions and the ultimate accolade of a New Zealand Master Blade Shearer.

Janes interests are family, reading, movies, gardening, cooking, travelling and friends company.

We have enjoyed the Mackenzie Country and Twizel for some 40 years. Twizel is growing and developing all the time. A true Gem in the South Island. It is a privilege to share this environment and the entire Mackenzie Basin with our guests.
