Kermit is a self contained modern studio cabin located close to the beautiful Lake Ratapiko. 30 minutes drive to New Plymouth city and a similar distance to the mountain.

surrounded by rolling farmland, Lake Ratapiko attracts water skiing, boating and fishing enthusiasts. There are swans, pukeko's, shags, kingfishers and a variety of ducks as well.

You are welcome to take a walk around the 4km of farm tracks, catch a sunset or enjoy the early morning mist hovering over the water and nestling in the hollows.

Lake Farm is a secluded rural destination off the beaten track. During the week you will see more cows than people, however in the weekends good weather will draw a small crowd to the public side of the lake.

Kermit has everything you need for a relaxing break away, at the end of the day light the outdoor fire pot by the jetty and watch the fish rising as the sun goes down.

A winter visit is a great time to dress up in all your winter woollies and go exploring on a frosty morning, crack the ice in puddles, admire the delicate frost patterns.

Lake Farm has a garden around the homestead, if you have an interest in gardening ask Linda to show you the door in the oak tree and the wardrobe...

Lake Farm Garden is a wedding venue for couples looking for a rural, rustic location with a focus on having a country wedding they way you want it.

  • Beautiful location, the cabin was better than I expected

    Beautiful location, the cabin was better than I expected. I loved the quirky little touches. My partner, myself and the dog had a lovely weekend, very peaceful. One recommendation would be a better shower. Would highly recommend a stay here and I can only imagine it would be even more beautiful in the summer ????

  • Both Kermit and the location was everything we needed

    Both Kermit and the location was everything we needed. Beautiful spot. Maybe a television on a wet day for some?
