Nightingale Falls Farmstay Retreat
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 21 February 2013

Just returned from our stay at Nightingale Falls Farmstay. We booked for 2 nights not knowing what to expect and stayed 4 nights. We would probably still be there if there was not a plane to catch.

The location a short drive from Thames is in the hills overlooking Tararu Bay and the Firth of Thames.Both of the cottages available for rent have fabulous views. Both cottages are appointed extremely well and Twickingham Cottage has full cooking facilities as well as a fireplace.

Cottages are quaint, clean and offer comfortable beds and the comforts of home in an exquisite rural setting. Our host family the Martins were warm, generous people anxious to have their guests be as comfortable as possible.Farm tours, swimming in the swimming holes or just sitting on the deck sipping a glass of wine and contemplating the universe,we did it all and loved it.

We would highly recommend this venue to anyone wishing an escape from the ordinary, or maybe just a well needed break from a hectic travel schedule or city life.

Room Tip: If you would like to prepare your own meals you can choose the 2 bedroom Twickingham Cottage with it...
