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. ( No longer a working Lavender Farm) 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 shower room with the second bed, a king, in the spacious living area. The kitchenette also opens onto the main room and is well equipped. A gas BBQ on the deck provides additional cooking facilities.
The studio is all on the lower floor with no accommodation on or access to the upper floor.

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 that The Old Lavender Farm is no longer a working Lavender Farm.
