This place is amazing. The atmosphere is relaxing and tranquil. I was so relaxed after my stay. The hosts are fantastic. Thank you so much for your hospitality Robyn! The retreat is located just out of town which is close enough to still go out for dinner yet have the fantastic rural vistas with no traffic noise. Couldn't be happier!

We stayed for one night and had a lovely experience. The owners are lovely and the accommodation is incredibly warming. Lovely amenities and great pool after a long day of travelling in the heat. There was a local take away that is great and we enjoyed dinner off our patio watching the sun set.

The Huntington Stables is a small and beautiful place to stay. My wife and I stayed in the Lodge, which is cozy and has great views of the countryside. We chose this "farmstay" (although I'm not sure I would categorize the property as a farm) because of its proximity to Hobbiton. This place exceeded our expectations in every way. Robyn,... More

Many thanks for leaving such lovely feedback! Huntington Stables is certainly not a 'farmstay' so not sure where this is advertised as such. I hope you took a copy of the muesli recipe from the back of the information folder, so you can make this for yourselves at home. Otherwise, there is a downloadable copy on the Sundry page of...

I recently had the pleasure of staying for 4 nights in the North Stable. I was in the Waikato to attend an event at nearby Mystery Creek. What a fabulous experience.
