Situated in a quiet paradise on the edge of Waihi bush looking straight out to Waihi peak and built within a stroll to the Waihi river, the barn is a true escape from city life, less than 2 easy hours drive from Christchurch.

Purpose built for accommodation, the barn is very spacious with a high vaulted ceiling. It comprises an open plan living/kitchen and numerous options for open plan sleeping (6+ and well suited for a couple/ family or group.

Take a holiday from your cell phone and screens - we are proudly back to basics (no internet or cellphone but a landline and TV available for emergencies!).

You may choose to just enjoy the tranquility of the ponies and other farm animals and we have a well loved country garden. We enjoy carriage driving; our ponies are driven most days during summer. Chickens and sheep provide a full "farm stay" experience but with the privacy of some distance between the barn and main house.

The barn is just a short drive from Geraldine, where we enjoy all the facilities of NZs favorite small town. Great coffee and cuisine and the opportunity to sample a unique movie theatre, bush walks, locally produced gourmet cheese, chocolate and fruit products await.

Cleaning will be provided for $50 per stay. Linen hire for $5.00 per person and for breakfast and other meals, please call to discuss.

  • Absolutely outstanding accommodation and surrounds

    Absolutely outstanding accommodation and surrounds. Our experience was so positive we're already planning next year's trip. Can't recommend this enough (although I'm tempted to keep it a secret so I don't have to share!). Thanks Steve and Bindy!
