Bush & river reserves close to town, and spacious, sandy beaches are only a short drive away. Spot rare birds at Manawatu Estuary, visit the native owl sanctuary, or enjoy feeding the various waterbirds that make Levin's Lake Horowhenua their home. Walk through the nikau forest at nearby Lake Papaitoanga or enjoy a round of golf, or cycling our flat roads, or mountain bike tracks.

Catch a movie at the local cinema, or watch one of the DVD's provided in the Bach. Take a dip & spa at the aquatic centre, or enjoy Te Takere, Levin's new library & cultural centre. Pop up to Foxton to see the Dutch Windmill, the Flax Gift Gallery, (contemporary art & designer gifts), Maori Arts space, small Flax Stripper Museum and Museum of Audio-Visual Technology.

After all that, retire to this relaxing cottage for a quiet dinner. Fresh herbs & veges in season available to include in your meal. Sleep like a log in the comfy new bed, then try the great breakfast menu at Whispers Cafe - (open daily from 7am), or make a smoothie in the cottage kitchen blender, before you head out, refreshed and feeling wonderful!

  • The Bach At The Patch is a great place to stay

    The Bach At The Patch is a great place to stay. Great location to stay if you want to get away from the fast pace of city living & just chill out :) My daughter & I thoroughly enjoyed our 2 nights & look forward to returning again. Thanks so much Charles & Radha :)

    Ideal for a restful retreat. The place is clean, well thought out with attention to detail. I’ve never slept so solidly! It’s quiet, comfortable and relaxing. Can’t wait for my next break.

    Beautiful clean, roomy cottage with all the facilities we needed. Lovely setting in a productive and peaceful garden. The location was ideal for us close to family and friends in Kapiti and the Horowhenua. Very comfortable beds, we would stay here again.
