Our Place

Our small 6 Ha (16 acre) farm/orchard has around 400 mature chestnut trees and we run a steer, ewes & lambs and chooks. Guests are welcome to look around as long as they leave things as they find them. We have large gardens and, being on a ridge, have extensive views over the gardens, orchard, farmland, Whangamarino Wetlands, Lake Waikare, surrounding hills and Te Kauwhata village. Petanque and croquet sets are available for guest use.

The Queen room, as well as a queen bed, has a comfortable single trundle bed. It now has it's own en-suite bathroom with toilet, vanity and shower. The room has TV, radio and a small desk and library of interesting books. Tea and coffee making facilities are always available in the kitchen across the hallway.

Your hosts

Janet & John Free have lived in the district for more than 25 years (John being originally from England and Janet from The States) and have a wealth of knowledge of the area (and New Zealand in general) which we are happy to share with you, if you are interested.


Our home is a smoke-free environment but there are covered, sheltered outdoor areas for those who wish to smoke.


We look forward to hearing from you.
