Situated in a quiet paradise on the edge of Waihi bush looking straight out to Waihi peak and built within a stroll to the Waihi river, the barn is a true escape from city life, less than 2 easy hours drive from Christchurch.
Purpose built for accommodation, the barn is very spacious with a high vaulted ceiling. It comprises an open plan living/kitchen and numerous options for open plan sleeping (6+ and well suited for a couple/ family or group.
Take a holiday from your cell phone and screens - we are proudly back to basics (no internet or cellphone but a landline and TV available for emergencies!).
You may choose to just enjoy the tranquility of the ponies and other farm animals and we have a well loved country garden. We enjoy carriage driving; our ponies are driven most days during summer. Chickens and sheep provide a full "farm stay" experience but with the privacy of some distance between the barn and main house.
The barn is just a short drive from Geraldine, where we enjoy all the facilities of NZs favorite small town. Great coffee and cuisine and the opportunity to sample a unique movie theatre, bush walks, locally produced gourmet cheese, chocolate and fruit products await.
Cleaning will be provided for $50 per stay. Linen hire for $5.00 per person and for breakfast and other meals, please call to discuss.
Extras: Cleaning (Required, NZ$50.00 per stay); Linen (Optional, NZ$5.00 per person);
This is a wonderful place to stay in a beautiful setting. I would recommend staying here to anyone looking for a quiet, beautiful place to unwind and unplug.
What a great place to stay, the kids loved the horses and Bindy and Steve even took them out for a carriage ride! Highly Recommend
Beautiful building; very well set up; clean, tidy and welcoming. Lovely walks all around - great for the dogs, kids and us. A magic spot.
Bindy and Steve were fantastic and really made our stay that much more special. The barn was amazing and very comfortable, the location was a slice of paradise! They even took us on a ride with their ponies which was a big highlight of the stay. Very welcoming, including our young dog where treats were left and a bed made up in front of the fire. Would highly recommend to anyone who is looking for a peaceful retreat in the heart of south canterbury.
Lovely spot and great building. Everything we needed was there. Wonderful place for our kids too (5 and 2). They loved the roll-out beds, the spacious garden, the toys/games and of course the ponies. Absolutely enjoyed our stay. And the carriage ride too!
