The Farm house is pretty big and large. You get to see Lot of unique and NZ local farm animals. They also let you feed the animals and click pictures. A good place to be.

Friendly, helpful staff and quiet horses. A peaceful walk in a beautiful setting with horses that know the way. We left with a lovely chilled out feeling :-)

We are novice horse riders and we loved this experience. Gentle horses and a beautiful setting. Views of rotorua lake and paddocks with cows and sheep. Very friendly guide hugh told us hilarious stories and made the ride even more enjoyable. Wonderful with our 8y old who was nervous at first. We would recommend this for a family holiday activity.

After standing around for a minute feeling silly we asked two girls where to go. They very briefly explained where we should go in a... More

Hi Micaela, thank you for your review. I feel very sorry that you could not enjoy your time at the Farmhouse and you couldn't even try the horse trekking. Regarding the signs, we have had a signage showing where the office is, but I must say that it was too small to find. After we read your review, we built... More
