About this Holiday House

Rock 'n Rata Cottage is on the 7 acre organic property of the historic Rocklands Homestead. The cottage has its own private access and is set against a backdrop of limestone outcrops, nikau palms and mature rata and totara trees. These and the huge pohutukawa and puriri trees behind the homestead attract many tuis, bellbirds and woodpigeons. Rural and sea views across to the hills on the far side of Golden Bay. Very sheltered and private, yet only 3 mins drive to Pohara Beach and 7 mins from Takaka. Property is adjacent to Grove Scenic Reserve, a rock and rata wonderland with a panoramic view of Golden Bay. The perfect base for exploring the Abel Tasman and Kahurangi National Parks. Delightful, spacious, well-equipped cottage, woody and warm (log burner). Bath, shower, laundry and TV. A wonderful place to stay all year round.

Al and Sue
We stayed at Rock & Rata in September 2018 The property was situated in a lovely private rural setting surrounded by fruit trees and the fabulous Takaka rocks, The upstairs bedroom had views of the Grove scenic reserve which has the most amazing rocks I've ever seen. The cottage was clean and tidy with a cosy log fire and a well furnished kitchen, just five minutes down the road is the Pohara beach with great cafe's and views, John and Sue were lovely hosts, Rock & Rata is the best spot I've stayed at in a long time.

We stayed at this lovely cottage in 2015 and had the most relaxed and peaceful time. We are coming back to NZ in 2017 and hope to stay there again. We loved the friendly owners who made our stay so wonderful. Leonie krieger

Lovely place to stay. Nestled in an orchard at the foot of a craggy hill, this is a great location to explore the top of the South Island. The cottage is clean and tidy, with interesting rock formations behind and a rural view at the front. Only minutes from Takaka and several beaches.
