Northgate Lodge is situated a short 500 metre walk to the beautiful Ruakaka surf beach. It is a private equestrian property with a large all weather arena, full set of showjumps and exquisite beach riding.

Enjoy a relaxed atmosphere on our quiet, private property. We have a range of cabins with a communal kitchen & lounge area and outdoor entertainment area.

Horses are treated like kings with a selection of yards, stables or paddocks to cater for their comfort.

A 100x65m all weather arena and a 40x20m dressage arena is available to use during your stay.

A full set of showjumps or show hunter fences are also awaiting you.

A short walk down the quiet road to Ruakaka beach where 3.5km of sandy shores take you on a magical ride down towards the Marsden Point oil refinery.

Just a short drive to Marsden Cove marina where you can launch your boat and go fishing in some of the best spots in Northland.

We have a range of other accommodation on the property and can sleep up to 17 people in our boutique cabins.

So if you are planning a wedding, a family event or just want to get together with friends then book them all in at the same venue.

  • Great place to stay

    Great place to stay. Nice and quiet most of the time. Working walking distance to a gorgeous beach. They have a fully stocked kitchen and a TV lounge. The cabin was also comfortable and nicely decorated. It was great to be able to bring our dogs as well. Overall a great place to stay.

    Awesome location close to the beach, very comfortable stay with a lot of things to do if you have children who get bored a big TV and game room as well as a big kitchen with all you need for cooking and eating, awesome outdoor barbecue area with surround sounds and plenty of land to go for walks. The laundry facilities were free for us to use which was a big bonus as we have 2 wee girls who love to get dirty. A real people friendly, animal friendly place and we'll look forward to returning
