Rangitikei Rural B&B, Farmstay
Manawatu/Rangitikei region. 10 minutes off SH1 at Mangaweka.
Phone: 06 382 5726
Address: 906 Ruahine Road
Hosts: Virginia and Neil Travers
Directions: Turn off SH1 onto Ruahine Road just north of Mangaweka, and travel 9km. Mt Huia Farmstay is on the right behind a green picket fence and white gates. Detailed directions can be provided at time of booking.
You drive a short distance from SH1 on a unique road with steep papa cliffs on one side and a river gorge on the other, then suddenly the joy of open spaces, green pastures and nature at its best.
The homestead has a back-drop of a native tree reserve, and is in a large country garden with large tress and expansive lawns. The Garden View room has a double bed and is accessible from the front verandah; The Courtyard Studio room is a detached space made up as either a king or two singles and has it's own kitchenette and TV. Each room has ensuite with shower, toilet and hand basin; the beds have electric blankets; a heater and hairdryer; there are facilities to make tea/coffee.
You are greeted with refreshments on the deck, then are welcome to take a walk on the farm or down to the private section of the small river running adjacent to the property. An optional farm tour by 4WD vehicle or bike is offered (additional cost, time and farming circumstances permitting) and we do recommend this as an excellent means to appreciate and understand hill country sheep and cattle farming in New Zealand.
The attractive homestead lounge opens out onto an expansive deck, and both areas are available for guests to relax, read, watch the birds in the garden, or enjoy your wine. Complimentary WiFi is also provided.
Should you choose to have a catered evening meal, you are in for a treat with delicious country cuisine and interesting conversation.
We look forward to welcoming you.
