We loved how authentically New Zealand it was. Simple tranquil beautiful accomodation in a setting to die for. We had everything we needed, the place was spick n span, Belinda was great, we loved it
Our group of 11 active walkers loved this pair of lodges in a beautiful setting of native bush beside the stream. Basic but adequate facilities proved very comfortable and we really enjoyed the hot showers after our day walks over the farm. Thanks for the very informative sketch maps, we found them very useful and saw some lovely corners of the farm and surroundings.
The bush lodges were absolutely fantastic , I had my hens weekend away there with my friends and it was everything I could have wished for. Belinda was a fantastic host and the horse riding was excellent , we had so much fun. The lodges were clean , and they had everything we needed. I will definitely be visiting again and all of my friends will be going back with their families.
Had a great time in the cabin. Building fires, hanging out at the creek and going on hikes. Road there is a bit tricky for small cars. Make sure to go slowly across the creek!
although a little small for the 6 of us, the lodge was tidy and met our needs. the horse trekking was surely the highlight of our stay.
