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 location and facilities with everything you need for a comfortable stay

    Great location and facilities with everything you need for a comfortable stay. Due to bad weather we had a fair bit of time to enjoy the lounge, DVDs and kids toys, which were a godsend. The only thing I would suggest is providing guests with a little more information on what to do on arrival, as we didn't know whereabouts on the property our cabin was located and felt a little lost. Otherwise great stay.
