Fancy staying in the beautiful, tranquil surrounds of the Lavender Studio in Takamatua Valley?

Our holiday studio occupies part of the lower floor of the building in the photo and has it's own large sunny, private deck, with stunning views and outdoor bath.

The space
Nestled in the tranquil surrounds of the Old Lavender Farm in Takamatua Valley. Escape the rush of city life and come and relax amongst the gentle smells of fresh Lavender.

The Old Lavender Farm is a peaceful rural location set in 1.6 hectares of lavender, olives and fruit trees. Wander amongst the fragrant lavender taking in the scenery and ambience of this magical spot. Awake to the call of the Bellbird and Tui in the morning.

Sunny, attractive and with necessary modernisation, the studio opens onto a large north facing, private deck on which to relax and soak up the sun and enjoy a quiet evening drink. The studio is totally detached and private from the main residence.

There is a separate queen bedroom and bathroom. The second bed, a king, in the spacious living area. ( Please note - if you have children they will need to share the Queen bed or we can supply a “put up” bed for a smaller child or travel cot for infants )The kitchenette opens onto the main room and is well stocked with all the basics. We supply breakfast to have at your leisure - tea and coffee, cereals, milk, fresh seasonal fruit, fresh eggs, bread, margarine and condiments. We include A gas BBQ on the deck provides additional cooking facilities.

The Studio is located on the ground floor. For larger family groups, the Lavender Loft (located on the first floor) may also be booked if available, to accommodate 8 guests in total. See separate listing for more details about the Lavender Loft.

On site is a working Traditional Oak Smokehouse for the locally farmed Salmon. If you happen to be visiting on the production / smoking days you are welcome to watch the process and learn a little about our Artisan product.

There will be a sample in your fridge to taste during your stay.

*Please note: The Old Lavender Farm is no longer a working Lavender Farm.
