Te Pohue(Camp Bay), located in Lyttelton Harbour is steeped in history
...its loaded with tales of french occupation, Maori vegetable gardens and brutal conditions of early European settlement.
The farm is 306 hectares, ranges from mainly steep tussock covered native pastures, thick with over-sown clovers to flat hilltops and rolling home paddocks.
The homestead was built in the 1930's and is an inviting place to rest the weary travelers mind and body.
The beds are comfortable with down or wool filled duvets, cotton sheets and plush woolen pile under-blankets. The rooms are comfortable and we also hope our guests spend time in the relaxing environment downstairs or out in the open air of the garden, farm or beach.
Things to do while staying with us....
We encourage our guests to use the farm for walks, whether it be for leisure, bird-watching, needless to say the scenery and views will blow you away once you're on top of the farm.
And the beach which is less than 50 meters from the front door
Mussels and other crustaceans can be found clutching onto the volcanic debris that the beach bares.
Rock hopping is a great pastime for many visitors to Camp Bay. Fishing can be done from the rocks, we do have some fishing gear you can use but no guarantees
No dogs in homestead, but we do allow dogs and horses at the Fishermans Hut and horses at Little Port Cooper .
