The Pt Fitzroy store and boatclub/pub are a brief 10 minute walk (or kayak) away, and other day and o/n walks are easily accessed from the property.

This is an ideal holiday home for those with a boat for fishing and exploring the harbour and coastline, or as a base from which to explore the island on foot or by vehicle. Glenfern Cottage and Fitzroy House are both located within Glenfern Sanctuary; a 240 ha fenced, pest controlled restoration project where you can experience some of New Zealand's wildlife at its best. Guided or self guided walks are available which include access to the crown of a Kauri tree via a swing bridge.

Special conditions: Glenfern cottage is situated immediately next to Fitzroy House. Fitzroy House is the original homestead on the property and has been extensively renovated and refurbished; offering spacious living areas, functional modern kitchen, 5 large bedrooms (2 with ensuites) and separate bathroom. This homestead sleeps 8+. Available for holiday rental summer, or rent both the cottage and homestead for large family get togethers, weddings or corporate functions.

  • Wonderful old homestead

    Wonderful old homestead. Spacious. Great views. A very good base to explore the northern area from. Sarah andChris answered all our questions happily and we enjoyed the flora and fauna around the sanctuary- the kaka and banded rail were a delight.

  • Ideal place for anyone interested in conservation

    Ideal place for anyone interested in conservation. The birdlife was wonderful. The walking track was well maintained and a must to do. There is plenty to do in this location including great swimming spots.
