The Barn In Riverhead

Max Guests

About this Holiday House

The Barn is situated behind one of the Mill workers cottages in the heart of Riverhead on half an acre yard of beautiful gardens and mature trees. Roaming the property you will see our friendly free range chooks and Xena a Swedish Vallhund who loves to talk!. Also situated on the property away from the Barn is a beehive which supplies a very tasty raw honey. You will feel like you are in the heart of the forest, surrounded by native trees (even our very own Kauri), and with native birds (Kereru, Piwakawaka and Tui to name a few) frequenting the property, you will find The Barn a relaxing and peaceful place to spend time away. The Barn is completely detached from the cottage to ensure a private quiet space. Recently converted into a dwelling with two levels and covered outside decking area. The Barn has all new appliances, recycled Rimu flooring and a wood burner for the cold winter nights. The warming, comfortable and contemporary interior will have you feeling like you are right where you need to be in your very own Barn away from home! Complimentary freshly baked sourdough bread with preserves and honey when given advance notice. (Two night minimum stay) Portacot available. We are a five minute walk to the Historical Riverhead Tavern which The Red Boat Company runs cruises to from the CBD. The Riverhead forest is close by with lots of walking/cycling tracks. The local Coatesville Market is on the first Sunday of the month 10.00 am to 2.00 pm all year expect January (rain or shine) it is about a seven minute drive away. The Catalina Bay Farmers Market is on every Saturday and Sunday 8.30am to 2.00pm approximately a 20 minute drive away at Hobsonville Point. A 20 minute drive through Kumeu and Waimauku will take you to Muriwai Beach & Woodhill Forest. North West Shopping Mall is also a seven minute drive and Albany Shopping Mall is around 15 minutes away. Boric Food Market is the place to buy fresh produce grown in its own onsite orchard and gardens only a five minute drive away. Hallertau Brewery is only a couple of kms down the highway, this is one of the many great places to eat and have a drink within a few minutes walk. Along with plenty of amazing vineyards and fine dining spots only a short drive away!

A beautiful clean, tidy and peaceful well appointed barn to stay. I highly recommend this accommodation to all. Thank you Wilma for an amazing stay and being such a great hostess. The homemade sourdough bread on arrival was amazing and such a great gesture. Thanks again 😊
Joy Burnett
Wow we loved 'The Barn' - the sourdough bread and the other wee treats were lovely. The bed was really comfortable and we had such a relaxing time. It could not have been better. We had dinner at the Riverhead Tavern only a short walk away which was also lovely. Thanks Wilma for making our stay so memorable. We will be back :)
