On a ledge overlooking organic farmland is your private glamping site, made from recycled materials like a hobbit hole (which really makes it a Womble hole if you remember them!).
A queen-bed is snug in the underground bedroom, and there's an outdoor massage shower, open campfire/bbq and shady hammock - all lovingly constructed from recycled materials.
Farm animals will wander past and the sustainable property is full of fruit and nut trees.
(Note: photos are old - will be updated Dec 3).

The space
You are on a private ledge overlooking the Puketirau valley, which contains the lush, productive Waikato farmland preferred by the hobbits. It is a peaceful and private setting amongst working farmland.
Maungatautari Mountain bird sanctuary is over your shoulder, silhouetted against spectacular sunsets that will deepen into the starry milky way.
You have you own open campfire (in a recycled bath!) with cooking plates and billy hooks, a massage shower with a view and a flush composting toilet.
At night, you are warm and comfortable inside an underground hobbit hole with a comfortable queen bed and genuine NZ wool blankets.
Surrounding your campsite is our productive farmlet. Pigs, ducks, sheep and cows may well wander past. We have a wide range of animals and over 300 food-producing plants - we grow all our own food sustainably and organically and love sharing the food (ask for our menu options) and lifestyle through farm tours and workshops.

Guest access
You can drive up beside the Hobbit Hole which is set down on its own private ledge.

Other things to note
This is a working farm and contains hazards.
Dogs must be fully vaccinated and under control at all times. We have free-range poultry (and sheep) and any harassment of the animals will terminate your stay without refund.

Location

Tirau, Waikato, New Zealand

You are in the middle of rural NZ but nearby Tirau village is a shopping destination with a variety of good cafes.
Rotorua, Waitomo, Taupo, Hamilton and Tauranga are all less than an hours drive away.
Hobbiton (Lord of the Rings movie set) is around the corner and you can see Mt Maungatautari bird sanctuary from your campsite.
The stunning Te Waihou walkway is just south of us and we also have some great golf courses close by, hot springs to swim in, and quirky NZ museums.
Or just relax in our lounge chairs with some of our books and magazines and enjoy being here.

I feel incredibly lucky to live is such a lush and scenic part of New Zealand and have a lifestyle which enables me to live with the land, producing my own food and having the freedom to make my own lifestyle choices. I also feel a responsibility towards the earth and think by living sustainably and making my little corner of it healthy for future generations, I am contributing in a very small way to making the whole world better. I can do this without compromising my comforts or my lifestyle and I like showing by example, that one can live comfortably and be sustainable.
