We stayed here for 4 nights over winter. The weather was appalling but to be honest it didn't bother us at all, it added to the experience. We turned the heater on and sat looking out at the view all nice and cosy. One night we took the kids for a spa with the rain pouring rain which was a highlight.
Kids also loved the animals, playing in the stream and jumping on the tramp.
The setting is ideal and nice and quiet away from road noise or other people and would suit anyone wanting to get away from it all. That being said it's a short drive to Paihia to experience the Bay of Islands, Waitangi, Opua and Russell. We also did the Cape Reinga day trip with pick up and drop off at the gate.
