Great fun for young families; hike, mountain bike or swim in the river
Definitely a great Kiwi bach with all the modern amenities . If your looking for country "Kiwi" experience, this is the place to stay. Would definitely recommend.
The setting is stunning and the accommodation amazing. come prepared to be blown away.
Beautiful hut, very comfortable and lovely wildlife in the area
the twin open air baths were a great treat!
The cabin was very clean and as described on their website. The kitchen was well equipped, but you do have to rely on creek for cooling drink/food. Outdoor shower is amazing and beds are comfortable. There are bush tracks nearby suitable for confident trampers or you can walk/bike using the farm roads. If you want to get away from it all, this is the place.
