Immerse yourself in the farming life, watch the cows meander past the house to get milked, the beef cattle grazing in the paddocks, Dodge the horse quietly munching away in the paddocks around the house, totally peace and quiet in a beautiful surrounding. Short walks can take you into scenic reserves, with fantails, goats, and an abundance of native wildlife. The house receive all day sun with beautiful views of a secluded valley. Feel part of the history of the Mokau river, once a bustling coal mining area, in this cosy comfy original cottage, visit the lime mine area on the farm and there is information on the original owners and life on the Mokau river in the house.
