Overview

Photos and Description of this Kaipara District holiday cottage

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 4)

Our Cottage is located in the hill country, 45km north of Dargaville. It is furnished in a charming warm country style that makes you feel welcome from the first moment you enter. Fresh flowers, books, tv, internet, games, toys and coloring books for kids...... our accommodation is fully equipped with just about everything you can think of.

A big deck provides outdoor space for your breakfast in the morning sun or a barbecue watching the sun setting over the farm hills. If you love to watch the stars, there is no light pollution at our location. You are welcome to use the small garden surrounding the cottage, there are even fresh herbs for you to use.

Families are very welcome. There is plentiful space for Kids to play on the deck or lawn. With parental supervision they can discover the paddocks or go and watch the cows being milked at the cowshed.

If you are looking for a place to relax or you are wanting to discover the multiple walking tracks and tourist attractions this area has to offer, you will love our unique little spot.

From the house you can stroll through the farm down to walk the historical Gorge Road which was closed after Cyclone Bola.

Trounson Kauri Park is only 7km down the road from us with its famous Kauri boardwalk. Trounson Park is part of the "Mainland Island" Program which is protecting indigenous key species like the brown kiwi. Here you can book a nightwalk to spot the iconic bird.

The Kai Iwi Lakes are about 30 min drive away and are a beloved Northland destination for swimming, waterskiing, troutfishing and boating.

The nearby Maunganui Bluff walk is a 3-4hour return hike and offers stunning views along the coastline and over the North Kaipara.

Other destinations are the Hokianga Harbour and Opononi, Ngawha springs with its hot volcanic pools to relax in, and Waipoua Forest with the biggest Kauri Tree New Zealands.

We loved this cottage, it was very homely. The fact that our young girls got to go and watch the cows being milked was magic. We highly recommend this to others. Thank you very much.

Firstly, this is not for those who view shopping as a prime holiday activity, or want posh.

Firstly, this is not for those who view shopping as a prime holiday activity, or want posh. The cottage is wonderfully homey and comfortable. The mattress is good, rather firm. The kitchen is very well equipped, which is necessary because there isn't a restaurant for many a mile. For a quiet retreat from the hubbub of work life there couldn't be a better place. Walking out in the paddocks, through the kauris or on the wondrously empty beaches is a refreshing break.
