Great location
93% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
The Rabbiter’s Cottage is based next door to our Te Aratipi Homestead and is part of a Century old sheep and cattle farm owned by the Palmer family.
It’s close proximity to native bush walks, the stunning Waimarama beach, Maraetotara Falls and Havelock North ‘village’ makes it a perfect farm stay and getaway without feeling like you are ‘in the sticks’. Perfect for families and children, we implore you to come and explore the sunny wine and cycle region.

The space
The cottage is situated next door to our garage and homestead. You share the driveway with us but the cottage is very private.
You are more than welcome to walk over the farm, around the large garden and play croquet, kubb or tennis. The stunning and popular Waimarama beach is a 12 minute drive further down the road, Mohi Bush only 5 minutes away and the scenic Maraetotara Falls 20 minutes away. We have completed our own bushwalk across the road also for you to explore. You are welcome to feed the chickens and collect the eggs. If you are into golf, we have our own course for you to play on for an additional fee.
