Our place is great for couples, solo adventurers, families (with kids), and groups up to 4. You’ll love the friendly people, countryside views, clean and tidy guesthouse and of course the central location with many local attractions like the Hobbiton film set which is a must do for any fan of the movies.

The space

This guesthouse is located in the countryside on a working farm. It has great views all the way to a nearby mountain range directly from your bed across the rolling hills of the South Waikato countryside. The guesthouse itself is detached and private so you can come and go as you please with its own bathroom & tea and coffee making facilities. Cutlery, plates and a fridge are provided but the guesthouse does not have a kitchen. The room is clean, quiet, light and well aired. We are happy to help so feel free to ask if you need anything.

Guest access

This is a detached guesthouse with its own shower and toilet and green areas around it. The main house has a separate clothes washing machine which you are welcome to use. The guesthouse is located on our working farm and you are welcome to explore the nearby farm areas and the native bush which is just a short walk away.

Interaction with guests

We live on the farm and have lived in the area for many years so are able to help with any questions you have about things to see and do in the area or even where next to go on your adventure.

Other things to note

This is a working farm so its not uncommon to see the cows in nearby paddocks and tractors and machines working. Occasionally the livestock may be in paddocks nearby and then gates should be left as you find them.

Lovely space and incredible views. Quietest place I’ve ever stayed and not far from Matamata (10-15min drive) so ideal for seeing the sights. Hosts very welcoming and lovely people, wish we could’ve stayed longer!
