Description

Our 2 bedroom house with 2 adjoining rooms, has equal amounts of character and comfort! Perfect for friends, family and club get-togethers (4 other houses available for accommo too)..The house is cool in summer but cosy warm in winter especially with the woodstove cranked up ! (The 2nd bathroom is outside and joined onto the back of the house - 10?m away) There's no deck but the BBQ tables on the lawn outside are perfect for supping on a wine or two and star-gazing at night (no light pollution here!!) Or during the day, look at those amazing views of cattle grazing on the paddocks with the backdrop of the mountains. In the creek 150m away, the hot days can be spent paddling in the shallows, building dams and spying fishlife. Further upstream, swimmers can jump off the bank and swim in the 3m deep hole. More swimming can be done at the waterfalls too - 3 of them - lovely native bush to go through. Tramping choices on the farm range from 1 to 6 hours - through bush, grassland and up into the mountains for amazing views of the Pacific Ocean and Hauraki Gulf. (Detour to an old goldmine for closeups of glow worms too) Horsetrekking is fun - all abilities can be catered for and all ages from 4 years old - walk, trot or canter along the grassy flats, through creeks and paddocks of sheep and cattle then up into the foothills for the views on the way home - beach rides too. Lots of Off-farm activities too 500m to Mahamudra Buddhist Retreat 1.5m to Medical Centre; Library; Art and Craft shops (including the Himalaya Store for clothes and jewellery); Cafes (including The Hereford 'n' a Pickle where local meat, produce, baking and condiments are sold); Post Office, Tennis courts and General Store *2km to School and tidal beach *1 hr 10mins to Coromandel Walkway *10mins to all-tide swimming at Waitete Bay and boat ramp and fishing charters (at Amodeo Bay) *25mins to Driving Creek...

    Second time around and it is still a great place to be. Great house and outdoor activities. The teenagers enjoyed the walk to pot hole falls. Thanks for letting us stay, we will be back.
