Welcome to the Ploughman's Cottage - the original Ploughman's cottage on our farm. This delightful cottage is situated amongst a cottage garden, with over 30 fruit trees, and is charmingly decorated and restored.
Conveniently located on State Highway 1, use the cottage as a perfect base for exploring the Bay of Islands and Northland - with Kerikeri and Paihia 20 minutes away, and the beautiful beaches of Matauri and Te Ngaere Bay just 45 minutes away. Kawakawa and the rail trail to Opua is 20 minutes down the road.
Explore the stunning sand dunes and wild rugged beaches of the West Coast with Hokianga Harbour only 45 minutes drive from the cottage.
Just 10 minutes up the road from the cottage are the Ngawha Springs - natural rustic thermal springs which boast an array of healing remedies!
After exploring and adventuring - retreat to your cottage and while away the afternoon enjoying the cottage garden. Taste the splendour from the fruit trees, or an egg or two from the resident cottage chickens.
Come and enjoy Northland and the Bay of Islands - whilst staying in a beautiful historic cottage in one of the earliest settlements in New Zealand.
You are welcome to harvest fruit from the trees and eggs from the chooks - please take enough for your stay, but leave some for our next guests.
