The farmhouse is smack in the middle of some really gorgeous, postcard-worthy NZL landscape (see pics). Aside from the farm...

Kylie & Andrew have created an amazing farmstay in the ruggard hills of the Nth Island. This was the highlight of our North Island trip and the best B&B. The knowledge and love for the land is shared generously with their guests Being 3rd generation on the property it is great to see they have created their own unique business.

We spent two nights at Rangitikei Farmstay on our way to Taupo. It's a great halfway stop from Wellington. The hosts, accommodation and setting were all fantastic. Our girls loved pony rides, feeding the sheep and the little dog Porky. Would definitely recommend and would stay again.
