Farmstay | Geraldine | #33774
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 does have TV and a landline 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 NZ's 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.

Beautifully converted barn with everything you need for a comfortable stay. The location was also stunning, with gorgeous river and bush walks leading off the property. Absence of internet was a huge bonus for us, we had a wonderful weekend spending time together as a family.
The most charming place we stayed in New Zealand. Set in the pleasant country side farming community, it was a real treat. Although we were a little apprehensive at the listing of staying in a "barn" it couldn't have been nicer. Would loved to have longer if time permitted.
