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 will supply ingredients for your first breakfast on the farm fresh milk and free range eggs when available. 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. New additions are Coral and Diago currently in training. Also born last year Spiro and his Mum SkyChi in the top paddock has a young friend coming to stay to enable separation from his Mum 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 cottage set on a lovely farm

    Beautiful cottage set on a lovely farm. Perfect location, far enough away from town to enjoy the country lifestyle, yet close enough to town, shops, attractions etc. A truely wonderful & comfortable home away from home. Our family will definitely be back to stay again! Our boys are already missing their buddy Ricky ?

    absolutely loved our time at Te Maunga Cottage, completely self contained with contemporary decor, very clean with a lovely outlook from the deck overlooking farmland and animals in one direction and Mt. Taranaki in the other direction, will come again sometime in the future.

    We are repeat visitors and the main reason for this is the quality of the accommodation, the rural setting, outside seating arrangements and the lovely chattels which make the stay a pleasure.
