Our Place

Our small 6 Ha (16 acre) farm/orchard has around 400 mature chestnut trees and we run a few steers and calves, ewes & lambs and chooks. Guests are welcome to look around as long as they leave things as they find them. We have large gardens and, being on a ridge, have extensive views over the gardens, orchard, farmland, Whangamarino Wetlands, Lake Waikare, surrounding hills and Te Kauwhata village. Petanque and croquet sets are available for guest use.


The accommodation is flexible:

The Super-King room can either have a massive super-king bed or two king-single beds. A comfortable single trundler bed is available too. This room has an en-suite including a spa bath with shower. TV, radio and tea/coffee making facilities are also included.


The Queen room, as well as a queen bed, has a comfortable single trundle bed. It now has it's own en-suite bathroom with toilet, vanity and shower. The room has TV, radio and a small desk and library of interesting books. Tea and coffee making facilities are always available in the kitchen across the hallway.


Both rooms have exterior doors so that you can come and go as you please. Garage parking is available.


Continental breakfast is included in the tariff and can be upgraded to a full cooked breakfast for a small extra cost.


A three (+) course dinner (nibbles and a drink before, entrée, main course with a glass of wine or beer, dessert and tea/coffee) is available for an extra NZ$45
per person if notified in advance.


Meals are also available nearby at Rangiriri Tavern (every night), TKP (Fri night) and Te Kauwhata Tavern (Thurs to Sun nights), Muddy Waters Irish Pub* at Mercer and the small "food hall" attached to the petrol station there (every night) and the Old Court House* in Huntly (Wed to Sun nights). *Reservations may be necessary on busy days - we can do it for you if you wish.

Attractions
Close by are Te Kauwhata Village, Rangiriri historic site, Whangamarino Wetlands, a winery, a beautiful golf course, the Hampton Downs Motorsports Park and Showfields and Goldfeilds Equestrian Arenas.


Your hosts, Janet & John Free have lived in the district for more than 25 years (John being originally from England and Janet from The States) and have a wealth of knowledge of the area (and New Zealand in general) which we are happy to share with you, if you are interested. You are welcome to join us at our table for meals (we hope you will) but we also will respect your privacy if you wish to keep to yourselves and eat out or on your own. The decision is yours.


Our home is a smoke-free environment but there are covered, sheltered outdoor areas for those who wish to smoke.


We look forward to hearing from you.
