Description

  • Fly fishing, swimming, kayaking and white water rafting on the Mohaka river.
  • 6 acre garden with beautiful walks.
  • Farm tours available.

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!

    This was the ideal accommodation for our family as we were seeking a rural, quiet setting to relax and enjoy some time together. The shearer's quarters were very well renovated and maintained. It was very clean and cosy and our children loved the rural farm setting. I would highly recommend this spot to anyone.

    It was freezing during our stay - just after a snow storm - and we appreciated the full wood basket that kept us warm and cosy. Very classy shearers quarters. Would love to return in summer time.
