About our home

The farm comprises 20 hectares (50 acres) of farmland and 5 hectares of native bush. The lakehouse is set right at the end of the farm at the end of a long ridgeline track overlooking lake Tarawera and the mountain beyond. We are in the planning stage of developing a breeding programme on the property for game such as deer, chamois and thar. The property is progressively being planted with native trees such as Kauri, Totara, Rimu, Kowhai and Pohutukawa, home to birds such as the native Tui, Wood Pidgeon and Fantail, and there are also pheasant and quail on the farm.

The location lends itself to both a relaxing break or an action packed holiday, be it on one of the 18 lakes, mountainbiking in the Redwood forests, fly fishing, bungee jumping, natural spa treatments, cultural experiences... go to for more details and inspiration.
