Rangitikei Rural Farmstay, Hosted Self-catering
Manawatu/Rangitikei region. 10 minutes off SH1 at Mangaweka
Phone: 06 382 5726
Address: 906 Ruahine Road, Mangaweka
Hosts: Virginia and Neil Travers
Directions: Turn off SH1 onto Ruahine Road just north of Mangaweka. Travel 9km keeping the bluffs on the right and gorge on the left. Hodd Cottage is signposted on the left side of the road. Detailed directions can be provided at time of booking.
Set in a cottage garden, Hodd Cottage is completely self-contained with three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a separate lounge with open fire. The country-style kitchen and dining room has everything you need, and opens onto a private deck (with BBQ) overlooking the garden and farm paddocks.
We run a 865 acre hill country sheep and cattle farm just 10 minutes off State Highway 1 at Mangaweka.i. Work on the farm depends on the season, but generally there is something guests can help with to get a good understanding of what hill NZ country farming is about...or simply relax on the sunny deck, or curl up with a book in front of the fire.
You can take a short walk down to a small river with safe swimming holes in the summer – a delightful spot for exploring and picnicking.
There is a marked walk over the farm, a table tennis table in the garage, a petanque terrain and boule, and equipment for croquet. Three adult bikes (with helmets) are also available for your use.
Hodd Cottage is on the route for the Gorges to Sea Cycleway, a picturesque but challenging cycle ride. Art galleries, golf, tramping and river rafting activities are all available nearby.
Surrounded by trees and farm paddocks, this is a peaceful setting with plenty of bird song, and on clear nights the skies are full of stars visible to the naked eye.
You can be independent and self cater, or take advantage of the several catering options (please enquire with Virginia).
We look forward to welcoming you.
