Description

  • Peaceful tranquil spot with Waikohu river running through
  • Nestled in a bush clad valley
  • Fully operational hill-country sheep and beef farm

Peaceful spot only 7.5 kms off SH2, approx. 60 mins (75km)from Gisborne and 80 mins from Opotiki.

Matawai village is 15 minutes away and it is handy to the Motu Cycle trail.

Operational Hydro power scheme, bush, river & glow worms all easy walks from the cottage.

This is the perfect spot to get away from it all with no cell phone or internet coverage. (Spark cell phones may work in the odd spot up the road. )

Enjoy the natural scenery on your doorstep. Watch the Kereru & Tui fly past your window and weka's walk up the road.

  • Nice, quiet location away off the main road

    Nice, quiet location away off the main road. Tidy house with some toys and DVDs to entertain the kids, not to mention the paddocks. Plenty of room for the family :-)

    Cozy spot in the middle of nowhere but that's what makes it so special. Great spot to relax for a bit before exploring the mountains, the Bay of Plenty, or Gisborne. Works well for large families but still affordable for a couple.

  • We absolutely loved our stay at Mary's cottage on the farm

    We absolutely loved our stay at Mary's cottage on the farm. It was very peaceful place, surrounded by beautiful nature. House is well equipped with everything you need. All you need to bring is food. Definitely recommend this place.

    It's off the grid and perfect for some rest and recovery. Loved waking up with cows and cooks just outside the house. Beautiful spot!

    It was a great rural place to stay and get away from technology which is just what our kids needed it was great to see the native weka and also see the glow worm and explore the farm! House was equipped with everything we needed and plenty for the kids to do even though the weather didn't play ball.
