  • Close to everything but far enough away to enjoy the peace and quiet of country living organically.

Our property is quite new and we are endevouring to be as organic as possible. The cottage kitchen is well stocked and has an assortment of teas, coffee and organic milk from Dollys Manutahi Rd organic and unpasturised. I would like to offer ingredients for your first breakfast on the farm either continental or fresh farm eggs depending on avaiiability. Please help yourself to the herb garden enhances the flavour of all cooking & so-o good for you. Mahoetahi farm is located 5 min from Waitara, 10-15 minutes from New Plymouth, and 25 minutes from Mount Taranaki. The local sights I would highly recommend are Pukekura Park, Puke Ariki Museum, Len Lye Centre, Parititu Rock and Back Beach, Fitzroy Beach, Oakura Beach, actually all beaches are great. We are also lucky to have a river boundary available for picnics, sunsoaking and swimming. Animals on the farm include 3 cats Buddy, Pepper and Zeb who has just returned from University. Beef cattle, baby cows, 8 hens, 1 very friendly dog Ricky and numerous horses. Two brood mares have just finsihed foaling. New additions are Coral and Diago. Very very cute. Please come and enjoy our hospitality. We are here if you need us but you can be as private as you wish also. Cheers Gayle and Greg

    Beautiful warm accomodations that have everything you could possibly need. Lovely location and so peaceful, highly recommend a walk down to the river or a swim if its warm enough.

    Great location for us to relax, sit back and listen to the birds. Everything we could have wanted was supplied, and we didn't even have to leave the property to be able to take in the sights. Not bad when you can wander the paddocks, chat to the horses, check out the stream, and you haven't even left your accommodation. We had friends staying in motels and they were jealous of the comfortable & relaxed environment we had. Would definitely stay again.
