Retreat to the country on a scenic hill country farm and enjoy the comforts of the recently renovated, 3 bedroom farm cottage.

The warm, sunny house is a great place to come back to after a day on the mountain. Located 40 mins from Turoa Ski Area and 55 mins from Whakapapa Ski Area. 10 minutes from Raetihi and 20 from Ohakune. Enjoy your evenings in front of a roaring log fire, soak in the luxurious claw bath or sip wine on the veranda overlooking the garden alive with native bird life.

By prior arrangement whilst booking you can arrange a tour of the sheep and beef farm. This may involve:

- A demonstration of the dog team’s skills mustering sheep

- A visit through the ancient 50 metre lime stone cave - in which glow worms are often visible

  • This property is in an isolated location - really peaceful, beautiful farmland

    This property is in an isolated location - really peaceful, beautiful farmland. It is quiet, comfortable and well equipped. There is no phone coverage - quite a bonus! (it does have wifi if you are desperate to contact anyone). John was wonderful, taking our 14 year old grandson for two days work on the farm which he thoroughly enjoyed. Hope we can come again someday.
