Description

Located on the East Coast of New Zealand’s North Island, The Cowshed is just 10 minutes drive from Waihi, and minutes away from the Hauraki Rail Trail. Accommodation is provided in the character-filled herringbone cowshed, beautifully restored and furnished to combine luxury with memorabilia of a bygone era with a fully-equipped kitchen. The Cowshed sleeps four people, with fresh crisp linen provided. The Cowshed is located in the front corner of our 11 hectare lifestyle block, and is perfectly sited to maximise the sun and rural features of our property. A small stream winds its way through the area; at one point forming a shallow waterhole, suitable for cooling off in. The whole area has been extensively planted in native trees and plants. Some mature trees – totara, rimu and manuka feature, whilst young kauri and kahikatea trees are once again establishing themselves. Gather your friends, make a long weekend of it, and prepare yourselves for an adventure that has all the ingredients to make it memorable! Enjoy The Cowshed experience, great for family getaways, walking holidays, a romantic escape or just to experience rural New Zealand.

Any cigarette butts are to be disposed of properly and not left anywhere on the property. * Due to our rural environment and “Land for Wildlife” policy, dogs, cats and other pets are strictly forbidden. * Large parties ( 8 + people) are not allowed at The Cowshed without prior written consent of the owners. * No Fireworks allowed.

  • A stunning retreat in a stunning location

    A stunning retreat in a stunning location. Would highly recommend to any one wanting some peace and quiet not too far from town. Everything you could need has been thought of so that you can just sit back and relax.

    Very relaxing and comfortable property! Loved the outdoor bath and fire-pit! Kids absolutely enjoyed roasting marshmallows in the pit and breaking macadamia nuts while watching tv! The kitchen and lounge area has a great appeal! We had an amazing holiday - thank you!

    Unique, immaculate, charming, really a great place to stay! Amazing decor, done with style. Great especially with bit older children/teenagers just bc they can get their own room in the attached 2nd bedroom! Everything was smooth and well prepared, and I cannot give other but 5 stars. Thank you so much Jennifer!!
