  • The lodges are located on an awesome farm with tons of stuff...

    The lodges are located on an awesome farm with tons of stuff to do and see in a very quiet private bush area next to a beautiful stream. It's just a perfect place to relax and enjoy life. Whenever we visit New Zealand we'll continue to have a stopover at the Colville Farm. It's our favourite place in this great country with so many great places to visit. It's even the best location to get married :)

  • The property is wonderful, exactly what expect of a bush retreat

    The property is wonderful, exactly what expect of a bush retreat. Awesome waterhole! More signage as to how to get to the bush lodges would've been welcome, there is some there but very faded and our neighbours as well as ourselves missed the turn initially.

    We stayed in one of the bush lodges up a 2 km dirt track. They are very rustic , but good fun for a young family. Make sure you keep the fire burning to ensure hot water ! This was fun for the kids as they learned about fire, axes,, kindling. The kitchen and living area are simple, and there are seven sleeping in the main bedroom ! Again good fun for a family but be aware that will be the sleeping arrangements. The place was clean, warm and dry
