Very friendly and humorous hosts await you at The Barn with rather spectacular views. Facilities are equipped with everything you'd need and if you happen to arrive on a soggy day, don't fear as there will be a roaring fire in the communal area. As a frequent camper, I'd say it's the best I've come across.

Great spot. Keen to help everyone, finding spaces to park the campers, even though the masses had arrived after 2 days of constant rain. Nothing was too much trouble. Helped us to book trips and organised free transport. We would highly recommend. Well done guys. The

The Barn has the option of camping, campervans, cabins and dorms so someting or everyone. It was really clean, well run, toilet facilities for campers were excellent. I was impressed that they haven't just tried to fit in as many tents and campervans as possible, so each tent pitch has a good amount of room and the bathrooms were never... More

I stayed here just one night but it was very nice. Clean and decent matresses, mosquito nets on windows, showers and toilets were good. Reception has drinks, some food and leaflets. Short walk to the beach where there is a restaurant. And even shorter walk to most of the kayak companies. I didn't use the kitchen or lounge facilities so... More

Very close to Abel Tasman walk. Staff very helpful and kitchen big and clean. Rain rather affected our stay but definitely recommend this place. They kindly returned our money when we had to leave a day early

At the doorstep of Abel Tasman National Park, the Barn has the most breath taking scenery!! With views of the sea and the mountains, you can't go wrong. You get to wake up to incredible sunrises over the sea, and hang out by the warm fires at night with an incredible abundance of stars. You're close enough to town, but... More

The Barn was an absolutely dream. Right at the cusp of Abel Tasman park, you have spectacular ocean views, and access to the beautiful beaches of the park at your doorstep. All of the cabins, kitchens and common areas were very well kept and cozy. I can't say enough about the people who run this place - Rhonda, Will you... More

Definitely recommend staying here if you're doing the track. Even if you don't, a beautiful place to retreat, have a wander and go explore. Great views, cosy cooking areas and comfortable beds. Super clean too! The owners are very friendly and welcoming. And there's good wifi! Highly recommend!
