Horse treks suitable for beginners and experienced riders

Self catering accommodation 


Horse Rides

Put on your adventure hat because there are no flat boring tracks. We are cheap enough that you can bring the whole family, and you get the full hour or two hours riding that you paid for. Although most of our customers are beginners and are happy at a walking pace, we cater to the brave and experienced riders with the opportunity to trot, canter or even   gallop. All treks are guided.
 

Accommodation

The self contained self-catering 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom accommodation allows you to have a real Kiwi experience on a working dairy farm. You still get the luxuries of SKY, free WiFi and a giant deck to chill out on at the end of the day. 


Canoes

There are five 4-seater canoes on a small self-contained lake where you and your family can safely paddle around for as long as you like. Life jackets are provided.


Gloworms

Yes we have our own gloworms and if you are staying overnight you can take a 15 minute walk to go and see them. We also have special gloworm treks where we ride the horses at night through an ankle deep creek along our gloworm valley where you can see thousands of the little lights along the banks. 


Farm activities

People staying in the farmstay are welcome to watch or take part in seasonal farm activities. This includes milking cows, feeding calves and feeding out hay. You can also feed eels in the creek (bring some meat for them), go for a run or a walk, ride your mountain bikes around or take a torch out at night to look for possums.

Being a working farm we don’t have a dedicated receptionist waiting by the phone, but modern technology allows us to take calls almost anywhere we are, (although there are some places we just don’t get reception). We answer emails every day.
