Description

  • Amazing farm views at totally private, self contained farmstay in sunny, newly refurbed 3 bdrm house

  • Walk (or bike) on our beautiful tracks, picnic by the stream or simply relax at our country retreat

We would love to welcome you to Birch Hill Farm Cottage which is set in a totally private position on our 1300 ha hill country sheep & beef farm. It is sheltered by established trees and gets all day sun. It is also super cosy in winter with the fire roaring.

It is a wonderful spot to relax with family or friends, experience genuine rural Hawkes Bay living on a working farm and to explore this area. Get away from it all and relax away from the distractions of modern life and enjoy books, cards, board games & quality time instead. There are huge lawns around the cottage - perfect for kids to play and ride bikes, we even have a sprinkler & paddling pool.

You can walk or mountain bike on the farm - we have extensive, fully fenced tracks and multiple routes you can take, including to a picnic spot by our stream. There may also be opportunities to see farm work in action, depending on timing.

The cottage is very comfortably furnished, with great beds and has a new, well equipped, kitchen (with dishwasher) & bathroom. We provide a gas BBQ & some pantry basics (soap, tea, coffee, sugar, oil, flour etc). Most windows (incl. all bedrooms) & doors have insect screens on them.

It is 35 minutes (50 Km) to Waipukurau (nearest town with Supermarket and all amenities) and 15 minutes to Porangahau village (Pub that does good fish & chips, Garage, Dairy) and Porangahau Beach (8Km of golden sand - great for walking) and Porangahau Country Club - home of a beautifully maintained 9 hole golf course ($10 for a round) and 4 new astro turf tennis courts where the public is welcome to play.

The cottage is self contained and it is a long way to the supermarket so you need to come prepared! We also live on the farm with our children so are there for support, the odd thing you might have forgotten & emergencies. There is good cell phone coverage on the farm & in Porangahau.

  • Great location for both a couple or larger group getaway

    Great location for both a couple or larger group getaway. Was great to have the options of walking tracks on the farm. House was very tidy and loved sitting on the deck watching farm life and the cheeky rabbits and hares come out late afternoon!! Would definitely come back. Thanks for a great stay. Just what we needed.

    As return renters we had great knowledge of how wonderful the facilities were, and how peaceful and safe the area was so we had invited our entire family there for a long weekend....The grandchildren loved the open spaces...Great BBQ on the deck.....cricket/rounders in the paddock...lovely walks for family and the dog. We look forward to our future bookings, as it is number one on our list for a restful, peaceful holiday.
