About this Holiday House

A 2 bedroom quaint cottage, full of farm charm, overlooking your own little petting farm, within which lives; the Mini kune kune pig, Ernie. What our farm lacks in size it makes up for in diversity, from our retired house cow Mehetabel, to Poppy, our Wessex Saddleback pig, the miniature horses, Henry the donkey and two, full sized horses, all add to the menagerie. Check in time is after 2 pm and check out by 10am please. Rural enough to have the relaxing farm feel, while close enough to the city to be within range of all the major attractions Rotorua has to offer. An outdoor eating area that's perfect for either a romantic evening or to throw a steak on the barbie. If the grassed area out back isn't big enough then there's a full 6 acres to roam - plenty of space for exploring or to set up a game of backyard cricket.

This was the perfect stay for us with our twins. The animals were a real winner and kept the twins very busy, especially our daughter who loves horses. Her favourite was the donkey but our son preferred the goat. It was close enough to Rotorua to spend time there but lovely to come home to in the afternoon to the peace and quiet. Lovely quaint cottage and would definitely stay again. Enjoyed watching DVDs supplied in the evenings.
Response from Owner
Thanks for those lovely comments. It's always lovely to get great feed back.
This place is a hidden gem! Located on farmland just outside Rotorua, this place is a very comfortable spot to relax for a few nights. The animals add that extra bit of charm, but the cottage itself is quite comfortable and full of interesting things to look at. There are some very cool antique pieces of furniture and the wood stove is really neat (& very effective from what I understand, though we didn't need to have a fire). Definitely bring your groceries with you as there are no shops nearby. Cindy is very kind and did a great job making sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. Amazing!
Response from Owner
Thank you. It was lovely to meet you. Thankyou also for leaving the cottage so clean and tidy when you left.
We spent 2 nights here - I wish we had of spent another night because it was wonderful. With the amount of animals on site, it kept my 7yr old daughter busy until very late. Cindy is a very lovely person to meet, so warm, kind and friendly. My 2 girls and I loved it here. We will definitely be coming back every time. Ngawai.
