Ribbonwood offers unique accommodation in a magnificent natural setting. On a farm founded on principles of sustainability, you will be surrounded by mature trees and gardens, and have full access to all that the harbour has to offer.

A bonus is that the property is also home to a variety of animal characters, including alpaca, donkeys, pet sheep, tame eels, and so on.

Take the opportunity to switch off and relax close to nature, or take advantage of the alternative vibe of Raglan, with its strong arts and cafe culture.

Special conditions: Pets welcome with prior approval. This home does have a staircase, so may not be suitable for people with mobility issues. We host eco-tours on this property. This may mean that there will occasionally be a small group on the property for around 2 hours, learning about principles of sustainability. However, this will not affect your privacy or the enjoyment of your stay.

    An amazing property with great views and cosy accommodation. Hot pools 10 minutes in one direction and Raglan 10 minutes in the other.

  • Beautiful farm a short drive from Raglan

    Beautiful farm a short drive from Raglan. The bach stayed warm and cosy during our visit on a cold rainy June weekend, and was a perfect amount of space for our family of three (could have comfortably slept more if need be!). Our 2-year-old daughter absolutely loved visiting the animals, it was nice to be welcomed to walk around and see them and even bring them food throughout our visit. Almost every day since we came home she has been asking "Maybe go to farm again soon?" :)

    Beautiful property! The fire place made the house warm and cosy on our rainy weekend. We would love to return in the summertime so we can enjoy the animals :)

  • Perfect location for Raglan adventures

    Perfect location for Raglan adventures. We all loved the animals, learning about eels and more about NZ, the roaring fire at night and the view across the water sitting in the sun.
