Secluded Cabin nestled among five acres of regenerating native garden creating a peaceful retreat. Prairie Holm Farm is located along the edge of Lake Wairarapa and stretches towards the rugged Remutaka Ranges. Accommodation consists of a two bedroom cabin and an adjoining generous sized lounge/kitchen/bathroon cabin. The bathroom is a unique "camping style" room giving an open air feel. NOTE: Prairie Holm is a working Dairy, Sheep & Beef farm - No Wifi.

The space
The accommodation includes a two bedroom cabin with a separate generous building housing the lounge and a large fully implemented kitchen. Attached to the lounge/kitchen block is the unique open camping style bathroom containing two toilets and two wet floor showers.

There is a wood burner in the living area and plenty of wood.

The cabin sits at the top of a five acre regenerating native garden, creating a secluded relaxing rural retreat.

NOTE: BATHROOM - Attached to the lounge/kitchen block is the unique open style bathroom with two toilets and two "wet floor" showers.

We are located 13km from the Featherston township which provides a wonderful array of quaint shops, cafe's, a bakery and of course the famous Cross Creek Railway Museum.

On Saturday mornings there is a very popular fruit and vegetable market with fresh coffee and a local butcher on the BBQ.

We are within half an hour's drive to either Martinborough or Greytown if you'd prefer bustling boutique shops, vineyards, cafe's and restaurants.

Cross Creek Road and the Remutaka Bike Trail is 4km north of Prairie Holm on Western Lake. The Remutaka Bike Trail continues alongside Lake Wairarapa through vast farmland, pockets of native bush towards the shores of Ocean Beach and back to Eastbourne via a coastal bike track.

Guest access
PLEASE NOTE: Be aware that this is a working dairy, sheep and beef farm with large farm machinery, farm bikes and milk tankers also using the main driveway. You may also hear the machinery and farm animals during the day!!

Guests are welcome to wander the large native garden, however are not permitted in the working areas of the farm for health and safety reasons.

Other things to note
Our farm water is sourced from a creek and is gravity fed to our house and the cabin. Our family of six drink it straight from the tap as it is beautiful.
HOWEVER - if the water appears murky after heavy rain we recommend you boil drinking water. We also provide a small amount of bottled water for guests.

The bathroom is a unique semi "open air" bathroom creating a breezy experience enabling you to hear the birds etc.

Directions:
* If you are travelling from Wellington - take the first right into Moore Street as you come off the Remutaka Hill Road into Featherston.
* Moore Street becomes Western Lake Road at the edge of town.
* Travel approximately 13km from Featherston on Western Lake Road.
* The cabin is left open and ready for you to enjoy!!

We live in the main homestead, phone 027-4987565.

Prairie Holm Farm has been in the Gooding family many years, in fact we are the fifth generation to work the farm. We are predominantly a dairy farm, but have a number of sheep and beef grazing the steeper hills. This is a beautiful, stunning and rugged place which we love to share with family, friends and visitors.
