The farm stay was in a very handy location for accessing the Kahurangi National Park via the Cobb Valley. The surroundings are stunning with the place located at the bottom of the Takaka Hill, in the valley with the slopes sweeping up on both sides. Even though the farm stay is located in Upper Takaka, about 22km away from Takaka, it was still a handy location for the main Takaka township, about 20 minutes up the road. No shops in Upper Takaka so if you self-cater, don't forget to pick up food!
