About the property

Farmstay, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 9)

Nestled in the floor and head of the Takaka Valley Golden Bay.Outstanding views in every direction surrounded by awe-inspiring mountains.

Visit the film locations of The HOBBIT AND LORD OF THE RINGS. You will be in staying in MIDDLE EARTH.

Soak up the lush velvet greens of the dairy pasture to the stark greys of the scree runs with every imaginable shade in between from the Chalet alfresco deck.This is just when you wake up to the call of the Goldfinch and Tui birds in the morning. As the day unfolds so do the colours and hue to magnificent evening shades. The environment is a symphony of Rest, Relaxation and Recovery.

You will be staying on a working deer, cattle and game farm with tame Red Deer to get up close and friendly with as well as a small flocks of turkeys, chickens and pheasants. Also Bernie our working dog and his mum Bella.

In the evening you will be able to watch wild fallow deer exit cover and come to feed on the nearby pasture. At night you will be blown away by the expanse of twinkling stars and thoughts of the infinite universe.

The farm has walks through native bush and pine plantations where further views can be soaked up.

The chalet is self-contained but if you want to be waited on we do that as well with full scrumptious organic meals either served in the chalet or in the main farmhouse.If you want to become part of our family for your stay you can. We cater for exclusive individual needs.

We are within easy reach of cosmopolitan artisan Takaka and pristine beaches are 15- 20 mins away. The stunning world renowned Kahurangi and Tasman National Parks are easy access being 45 min away. Cobb Valley offers magic day walks as well as the expansive Cobb Reservoir in the shadow of Mt Arthur and Snowdon.

We can organise your stay and point you in the direction of what there is to see and do. Sit back and relax for trips into middle earth and beyond.

You will think you have died and gone to heaven.

  • 5 of 5

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!
