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.

A self-contained flat offers another choice of accommodation.

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.

  • Joanne was a very good host to our group

    Joanne was a very good host to our group. Great communication and easy going. Highly recommend staying at northgate lodge. Our entire group thoroughly enjoyed it and were most impressed with the layout and amenities. Very close to lovely beach as well as waipu cove and langs if you want a change.
