About the property

Farmstay, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 18)

Trade the noise and pollution of city living for the fresh air and quiet of the country. This is a peaceful retreat where you can recharge your batteries while enjoying the comforts of home with the benefit of the great outdoors at your doorstep.

We have scheduled horse treks every weekend, public holiday and school holidays, and for larger groups or a minimum charge can offer weekday treks as well (call for details or see our web site) .

This is a working dairy farm and you are welcome to come to the milking shed where the cows are milked once or twice a day (season dependant - approx late July to April). You can just watch, or put on an apron and try it yourself.

There are plenty of flat tracks and rolling hill tracks to explore as well as a stream and two small lakes. You will have the opportunity to see plenty of wildlife such as hares, rabbits, goats, peacocks, turkeys, pukeko, pheasants, a couple of sheep and plenty of cows and horses.

The farmstay is ideal for family get-togethers, informal business retreats, clubs or groups of friends. It is an older style 1950s house that was once the family home. The lounge has a fireplace for winter fires and the kitchen has been replaced and fully modernised. The beds all have comfortable motel quality mattresses and a large covered wooden deck has been added for outdoor living where smoking is permitted.

Dogs may be permitted by arrangement, but must be kept under control and outside of the farmstay on a lead or in a kennel. Children of any age are welcome and there is plenty of room to play, but parents will need to keep watch on younger children. Smoking is permitted outside.

Extras: Cleaning (included); Linen (included); Free use of canoes on our lake (included);

What a fantastic place to stay! Great for kids - so much to do - or just relax.

What a fantastic place to stay! Great for kids - so much to do - or just relax. Loved the kayaks, horse trek, milking the cows, fresh grapefruit, glow worms and just the serenity! Lovely large kitchen and dining - comfy beds and lovely hosts. Easy to book, easy to enter, easy to clean and leave with commercial washing machine and dryer (a must for the last morning after milking and getting a little dirty). Will definitely stay again. :)

We had a great stay, even though we were a bit unlucky with the weather.

We had a great stay, even though we were a bit unlucky with the weather. If you have a group it is very good value. We also ended up doing a 2 hour horse ride. It was a fantastic trek with awesome scenery through forest and up hills with a great view.

Great place with fantastic facilities.

  • 4 of 5

Great place with fantastic facilities. Our stay was a little soured by a random person wandering through the house to return some stuff who was quite rude, but overall it wasn't enough to detract from what a great place this is. Next time we'd just like an introduction if someone is going to be coming through.

Owner's Response: Our sincerest apologies for this, all our staff are aware that they are not to go up to the accommodation house without invitation from the guests. We have since investigated this matter and it should not happen again.

Fantastic place and people.

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic place and people. Great views from the house on top of a hill. Short walk to peaceful land with kayaks and horse treks. We had a wonderful time with 3 kids aged 18 months to 7 years.
