Description

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 once or twice a day (season dependant - 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.

You will need to bring all your own food, condiments and refreshments, or drive 15 minutes to Dinsdale where there is a fully equipped supermarket and an extensive range of takeaway food outlets.

The owner and manager lives in a separate house about 500 meters away. The accommodation is not shared with other people.

Extras: Cleaning (included); Linen (included); Free use of canoes on our lake (included);

  • Basic but very good backpacker style accommodation

    Basic but very good backpacker style accommodation. Big kitchen with everything you need, plus huge outside deck is really nice.

  • We had a great time

    We had a great time. Lovely staying on the farm. The accommodation is the old farmhouse but and perfect for our needs with a big family with kids. Relaxed atmosphere. Very nice welcome and fun seeing the milking. The horsetrek was fantastic and great for all ages. Beautiful scenery.

  • Great time and good R&R at the farmstay

    Great time and good R&R at the farmstay. Spacious for all nine of us inside and out. Quiet location, perfect getaway from the bustle of the city. Activities: kayaked, milking shed, horse trek, Raglan beach, swam at Te Kopua bay, Te Awamutu pools & Waterworld. Didn't have time to visit Kaniwhaniwha reserve etc. Highlight for us was the horse trek and star gazing at night. Only recommendation for the house would be a pair of scissors and a fan for the summertime. Thanks for a great time.
