We are located 1 Hour from Taupo on State Highway 5 & 35 Min from Napier where you will find award winning wineries, gourmet cuisine, orchards & farmers markets. Beautiful Waipatiki beach is located 45 min drive from here & is well worth a visit.

Fly fishing & spinning is available within a 5 minute drive down this stretch of the Mohaka river where chances are you will catch a trout. Fishing permits rod hire & purchase are available through 'Hunting & fishing' stores in either Napier or Taupo.

Within these same areas there are also many picturesque places to picnic, and if it gets too hot there are plenty of swimming spots along the way.

There is hunting nearby, you will need to apply for a permit through the 'Department of Conservation.'

From the Mohaka bridge to the back of the farm there is 4 km of river which runs alongside the property as the boundary, there is also a 50m waterfall that leads into the Mohaka river from the middle of the farm, guided farm tours are available P.O.A.

There is a 6 acre garden walk on the property where you can sometimes spot Kakariki, Bellbirds & Kereru. A 30 acre Arboretum garden is located within 15 minutes drive from here a $10 entry fee applies.

For the more adventurous there are 2 whitewater rafting/kayaking companies operating within 5 minutes drive from here.

There are plenty of farm animals to keep the kids entertained & directly out from the shearers quarters accommodation there is a fenced off paddock perfect for games such as backyard cricket etc. With minimal light pollution this makes for an excellent place at night for stargazing.

If you want somewhere to get away even if it's just to read a book away from the crowds in a private setting with friends or family then this is the perfect place!

    A sensitively restored and well furnished and equipped shearers'quarters in a quiet rural location. Six members of my fishing club used it as a base to fish the Mohaka River, and all were complimentary about the accommodation. It is an ideal base for fishing, recreational rafting or just spending a few days in the country.

  • We found the accomodation very comfortable

    We found the accomodation very comfortable. The Bach has everything you need for your stay. The shearersquaters has been carefully updated and the ambience is calm and relaxing. The location is perfect for a quiet getaway from the city of Napier.

  • House was rustic, nice and clean, bed's and furniture all comfortable

    House was rustic, nice and clean, bed's and furniture all comfortable. If you want peace and quiet this is the place for you, ideal for families who want to reconnect. A fair distance to town so would suggest you have all food for your stay as supplies are 45 mins away.
