We are an old Railway Farm Cottage in Hikutaia on the Hauraki Grass Plains in the Thames Valley, next to the original railway and river that serviced the area now called the Hauraki rail trail.
The cottage is in close proximity to Thames, Ngatea, Paeroa and the Coromandel.
The entirety of the house is yours it has lots of room to relax, rejuvenate and find serenity, just kick back and enjoy having a break.
