Relax in the peace and privacy of our charming self-contained cottage accommodation in a tranquil, rural setting. With a cosy log fire to keep things warm inside, you can choose to hide from the world or get out and about to explore local attractions or experience life on our 1500 acre New Zealand dairy farm.
Radcliffe Cottage at Waitapu Farms is self-catering accommodation with a fully equipped kitchen. The 3 bedroom cottage offers a cosy retreat for up to 6 people. Enjoy local tastes with complimentary wine and coffee, plus complete comfort with all linen and towels supplied.
With a sunny deck and views that stretch across our picturesque valley, the only rush hour traffic will be our peaceful cows who may occasionally meander past.
Guests keen to know more about farming and rural living in New Zealand are welcome to visit the cowshed during milking or see and feed our calves during July - November (both by prior arrangement please). Bring your gumboots or borrow ours! There’s plenty to see on the farm or you can choose peace and privacy for a quiet escape where everyday life is just far enough away.
The local attractions are another great reason to stay with us – we are a very short drive to local ‘best kept secrets’ Tomarata Lakes and Te Arai Point Beach, plus within easy driving distance is pristine Pakiri Beach with its wonderful Pakiri Horse riding and Treks. Matakana beckons with its wine estates, including Matavino where our gorgeous boutique wine is sourced. The attractions of North Auckland also include restaurants, cinema and farmers markets, fascinating Bennett’s Chocolates of Mangawhai is definitely worth a visit, the renowned Goat Island Marine Reserve is not far nor is Leigh; home of a renowned Fish and Chip shop and the go to place for popular New Zealand music gigs at Sawmill Cafe.
