Are you tired of rushing about, and need to slow down and enjoy a more relaxed pace of life? Valley View Rural Retreat is the right place to do just that. Enjoy the stunning views in this very comfortable property with all the mod cons. We have a sound bar connected to a modern HD TV for you to enjoy great sound with the large volume of movies at your disposal. You can also Bluetooth your own music, or play what is already on the portable hard drive, or bring your own USB! We are currently organising WiFi access and it will be available early 2016.

Come and feel yourself unwind, and enjoy our peaceful environment with plenty of space for children (and adults alike) to explore. There are many spots to enjoy a picnic, play a game of pool and in the summer you may be able to use the owners swimming pool (with prior permission). We have a great temperate climate, and can be very hot in the summer and with a new large log burner you will not be cold in the winter!

Wanganui township is 25 minutes drive away, and has some great attractions with it's Saturday morning market, award winning Cafe's and all the facilities you would expect from a City.

If you are interested in cycling, we are on a very popular cycling route that is used by many locals and events all times of the year.

If you'd like to see the calves being fed, or like to join in with the feeding that may be available on request. The opportunity to see the cows being milked is also something that may be possible upon request and subject to availability.

  • The setting is fantastic

    The setting is fantastic. We had a great time exploring the farm. If you do stay at Valley View I would recommend staying more than just two nights like we did. There is plenty to do, even if it rains, a game of cards by the fire while you look out over the valley would be just nice.

  • We had fun-packed days and relaxed evenings at Valley View Family

    We had fun-packed days and relaxed evenings at Valley View Family. The house was warm and sunny with plenty of space to spread out. The hosts Nicky & Andy were very welcoming, and we really enjoyed spending time with them around the farm. Our children really enjoyed playing with the toys provided at the house, especially the drive on tractor, and also enjoyed spending time with Nicky and Andy's children. We had a fantastic time, would recommend it to others, and would also love to return.

  • The house is really lovely and comfortable

    The house is really lovely and comfortable. The kitchen has everything you need. It's very quiet and peaceful, but also quite close to Wanganui.
