Offering free WiFi, the Brown Cow Farm Stay is located 5 minutes' drive from Levin and the State Highway. Guests can hand-feed the property's ducks, pigs, sheep, goats and a friendly brown cow.

This stylish apartment features a balcony, a fully equipped kitchen and a TV. The bathroom offers a shower and a hairdryer.

Guests enjoy free use of bicycles, lovely gardens and a children's playground. An array of activities can be enjoyed on site or in the surroundings, including hiking. The property offers free parking.

This farm stay is 80 minutes' drive from Wellington Airport. It is 100 km north of Wellington city.

Farm stay: sleeps 3

An ideal stop over, we are located just 2-mins off State Highway 1, 5-mins from Levin and just over an hour and 20-mins from Wellington, an ideal stop over on the way to the Ferry.

The private fully self contained apartment has a fully equipped kitchen, a modern comfy lounge with a full HD flat screen TV. Towels and quality linen is provided.

The apartment bedroom looks directly out onto paddocks inhabited by our goats, sheep, chickens, a brown-cow as well as the occasional duck and a stray rabbit or two. Our friendly animals can be hand-fed from the fence line at the back of the apartment.

Your room includes a king-size bed, laundry facilities, self-cater kitchen facilities, private lounge, a private garden courtyard for outdoor entertaining (great for having breakfast outdoors) plus your own private veranda overlooking farm paddocks (gets the afternoon sun).

From September to October organic daffodils are harvested making for a spectacular backdrop.

The Horowhenua area is the food basket of the nation with many local market growers producing in the region. Only minutes from your accommodation you can enjoy farm-fresh produce from the local vegetable/fruit stalls.

If time allows, enjoy the beauty of a walk or ride a bike around the nearby vineyard. Alternatively a walk along Waikawa Beach is recommended, a hidden gem only really frequented by the locals. The beach is a 10-min drive away.

We are a family-friendly facility with outdoor playground and additional single/bed or cot available on request.

If you are very fit and enjoy hiking it is possible to reach the summit of Mt Hector (1500 metres) in a long day from here. It is a strenuous 10 hour return trek from Otaki Forks which is 30-mins drive away.

It is possible to drive your car along a nearby deserted beach.
House rules
Smoking outdoors only please.

When feeding the brown cow please remember that while it is a lovely creature it is very large animal and we recommend that you remain behind the fence.
