We are more than happy for you to come and spend a bit of time with the ponies, short rides are available and longer rides upon request and owners available, please check at the time of booking.

Our pet rabbit enjoys sleepovers at the cottage and we can easily arrange for him to stay with you at the cottage for the weekend.

Our farm has a fabulous track, easy to walk or mountain bike along, walk along the river/stream that flows around the property and see what fish and animals you can see.

We look forward to meeting you, book today your family won't regret it.

  • Very relaxing farmhouse with resident ducks, chickens & a rabbit 'Boots'

    Very relaxing farmhouse with resident ducks, chickens & a rabbit 'Boots'. Set 20mins from Porongohau Beach, it's halfway between the town of Waipukarau & gorgeous Porongohau Beach. The house is clean, neat & tidy, no internet, but board games supplied. Nice to connect with family with no mobile phones & internet! Would definitely stay again & now my daughter wants pet ducks!
