About this Holiday House

Enjoy a truly relaxing, stress free getaway on a large New Zealand sheep and cattle farm.

Pakira cottage sleeps five and is fully self-contained including games, books, magazines and toys - something for everyone. There's loads to do here - tramping, mountain biking, trout fishing, swimming, photography, full farm activities, including sheep shearing. Children love the animals.
