Biddy is totally off grid with solar lighting and a gas cooker so come with your phones and cameras fully charged. Even better, forget your phone for a while and really escape. There is no television, which lends nicely to playing cards or a board game, reading from the library, listening to the antique battery radio and then snuggling up outside with the duvet under a starry sky on the old wrought iron bed.

Biddy is located 8km north of Masterton on our family farm. She is 7.5 metres long (which happens to be the greatest length that a kangaroo can jump) so ample room to leap about. From your armchair you have a beautiful view over the farm and from your bed you look out at the mountains.

Standing on the front steps you can see the Loopline Vineyard and just beyond the old red barn is Paper Road Vineyard which offers casual drinks, dining and pizza nights. Loopline Olives welcome visitors for oil tastings and only 15 minutes up the road is the Pukaha Mt Bruce National Wildlife Centre where you can get to see the white kiwi.

This is a wonderful opportunity to experience glamping. Bring along your favourite coffee for using in the plunger and keep your beverages cool in the icebox. The bathroom has a hot gas shower and the caravan is kept cosy with a gorgeous wee coal stove. We provide your linen and towels.

    The location is excellent, just a short drive from Masterton and a walk or very short drive to a winery with a nice café. Its situated on a lovely farm and is completely private with unhindered views of the Tararua mountains on one side and Maungarakei hills on the other.

    A lovely place, filled with personal history and tasteful crafty touches. A wonderful spot to be away from the ordinary days of life. We look forward to returning sometime soon.

  • Amazing location

    Amazing location. Off the grid, but with cellphone coverage, beautifully restored caravan in a private spot. The outside bed is magic, we slept under the stars. Definitely recommended.
