Description

  • Architect-designed quirky brick & timber dwelling
  • Very private, set amongst ancient native trees
  • Panoramic views over the farmland & nearby mountain range

Set on a working sheep, cattle, deer & horse farm, 10 kms from SH1 on a scenic through route to Feilding & Palmerston North.

There are 4 golf courses within 1 hour from Mangaweka, including Rangatira Golf Course with it's 3 level course & unique cable car back up to the club house.

Locally there are beautiful gardens open to the public, including the renowned Cross Hills Rhododendron Garden 25 minutes away.

This is an area of river adventure - kayaking, canoeing, rafting (both white water & scenic), and of course trout fishing. The Rangitikei River is known as one of the best flyfishing (& most challenging!) rivers in the world, & we have the services of an excellent guide. Also on the river are the high-adrenalin activities of bungy jumping, bridge swinging & a flying fox.

Our river on the farm has wonderful swimming holes only 10 minutes walk from the house, and there is limited catch & release trout fishing. You can wander across the farm, or have a 4WD tour with David (conditions apply), visit the new born foals (in season) or feed the pet lambs & sheep.

Special conditions: Pets allowed with prior approval, special cleaning charge can apply Smoking outside only Not suitable for children under 10 years

    The Villa was absolutely lovely and just what we needed, a place to sit and do nothing. Such a grand old Villa, with glorious views of farmland to gaze upon from the verandah. Such a treat to stay somewhere so peaceful. We will definitely come back :)

    What a magical place! If rest, relaxation, animals and stunning countryside are what you enjoy, you will fall in love with everything about this place just as we did. We stayed in the gorgeous retreat for 4 nights over Christmas and were given free reign to roam the beautiful farm and surroundings. We didn't want to leave! So we've already booked our next stay and can't wait!
