Description

  • Our reasonably priced adventurous hill country horse treks suit all abilities including beginners.
  • Watch the cows being milked (in season) or bring your bicycles to explore the farm tracks
  • A short drive to Raglan, Hamilton or Pirongia for food and other entertainment

Trade the noise and pollution of city living for the fresh air and quiet of the country. This is a peaceful retreat where you can recharge your batteries while enjoying the comforts of home with the benefit of the great outdoors at your doorstep.

We have scheduled horse treks every weekend, public holiday and school holidays, and for larger groups or a minimum charge can offer weekday treks as well (call for details or see our web site) .

This is a working dairy farm and you are welcome to come to the milking shed where the cows are milked twice a day (in season - approx late July to April). You can just watch, or put on an apron and try it yourself.

There are plenty of flat tracks and rolling hill tracks to explore as well as a stream and two small lakes. You will have the opportunity to see plenty of wildlife such as hares, rabbits, goats, peacocks, turkeys, pukeko, pheasants, a couple of sheep and plenty of cows and horses.

The farmstay is ideal for family get-togethers, informal business retreats, clubs or groups of friends. It is an older style 1950s house that was once the family home. The lounge has a fireplace for winter fires and the kitchen has been replaced and fully modernised. The beds all have comfortable motel quality mattresses and a large covered wooden deck has been added for outdoor living where smoking is permitted.

Dogs may be permitted by arrangement, but must be kept under control and outside of the farmstay on a lead or in a kennel. Children of any age are welcome and there is plenty of room to play, but parents will need to keep watch on younger children. Smoking is permitted outside.

    We had a fantastic time here with all of our family who thoroughly enjoyed the time on the farm with milking, horse riding, canoeing, glow worms, and the opportunity to spend time together in the house. The owners of the property were very helpful and friendly.
