Bush & river reserves close to town, and several spacious, sandy beaches a short drive away. A cyclist's haven. Spot rare birds at Manawatu Estuary, visit the native owl sanctuary, or enjoy feeding the various waterfoul that make Levin's Lake Horowhenua their home. Walk through the nikau forest at nearby Lake Papaitoanga or enjoy a round of golf.

If you're in an 'in town' mood, try Levin's 'Op shop' and Factory shop' trails for super bargains, visit 'RJ's Liquorice' factory, and enjoy an organic wine at the Celtic Winery & Yeoman Brewery. Catch a movie at the local cinema (DVD's also 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 (& buy freshly milled grains). The Maori Arts space, small Flax Stripper Museum and Museum of Audio-Visual Technology are also worth a visit.

Experience some of the colourful rural events often hosted in the area: Easter Hot-air balloons, AP&I Show (Agricultural, Pastoral & Industrial), Beach Carnivals, Ye Olde Medieval Market, Organic River Fest, Vintage Car Meets, Foxton's Spring Fling and Easter Fest, and Great Forest Events' NZ's #1 Off-Road Marathon, 1/2 Marathon & 5km run/walk, and wow at the Otaki Kite Fest.

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. Cheers!

  • We loved our stay at the 'Bach in the Patch'

    We loved our stay at the 'Bach in the Patch'. All the home comforts, privacy, lovely homely feel and surroundings - including access to the garden and vegetable patch! Excellent access to the main highways and main town, Levin, yet out on the fringes with the beautiful countryside virtually on the doorstep. Great stay highly recommended.
