Rangitikei Farmstay is a "must do kiwi experience" located halfway between Taupo and Wellington (North Island, New Zealand). The Farmstay is situated on a large sheep (3000) and cattle (300) farm which has been in the Stewart family since 1901. Situated only ten minutes off State Highway 1 &3, providing the ideal location for an authentic farm experience. We offer a range of accommodation options, sleeping 18 in total but only taking one group at a time. The restored Bunkhouse, East and West Huts, are all situated around our beautiful large gardens. The Bunkhouse is also a farm Museum which showcases agricultural history of farming in New Zealand. For overnight guests, free activities include a farm walk with mountain to sea views and feeding our large range of friendly animals. Visitors are sure to leave with fond memories and fantastic photos. Our family looks forward to welcoming you and your family to enjoy our piece of New Zealand paradise soon!

We spent two memorable days at this wonderful farmstay. Kylie was very warm, welcoming and friendly. She ensured that our stay was comfortable and enjoyable one. We stayed in the bunkhouse. It is a heritage home that has been restored. Enough care has been taken to retain the character while making it more comfortable. The deck area is lovely and has BBQ to meet all your cooking requirements. What we loved the most was the greenery around with a lot of trees and plenty of walks that you can take within the property. I cannot describe in words how pleasant the whole setting was. You got to experience it. Special mention to Kylie for giving us a wonderful tour of the property/animal feeding. She answered our queries very patiently and explained what they and farmers like them around doing to preserve our wonderful landscape. We hope to be back here in future.

Property's Favorite Review
What a wonderful experience we had at Rangitikei Farmstay! The four of us spent two nights in the West Hut which was clean, well-appointed and convenient to all other amenities and activities. Kylie took us on a tour of the farmstay, telling us about the history of the farm and pointing out various walks and activities to do with some of the friendly animals and then left us to our own devices. The views are outstanding and the walk to the top of the hill at sunset is a must. We also opted for the shearing and mustering demonstration and are so glad we did. This up close and authentic experience on a working farm was an absolute highlight. Highly recommended!

Kylie was very welcoming. The West Hut was comfortable and clean with beautiful views down the valley. The dawn chorus was lovely to wake up to and the night sky amazing without light pollution. The bunk house was well equipped for self catering. We were holidaying with our granddaughter and she loved the experience, feeding animals and riding Dude was a highlight. Dinner on our last night got an overwhelming seal of approval from us all.

After reading all the wonderful reviews we booked our farmstay in New Zealand with Andrew and Kylie Stewart who own and run Rangitikei Farm. The Farm has been in the family since 1901. They have 2000-3000 sheep , 200 cattle, 5 working dogs, 2 cats, 2-3 horses and ponies and chicken. We got to go on a farm tour on the back of Andrew’s 4WD quad, it was wonderful as we learnt abt farming sheep n cattle. It’s wonderful that they are so generous to share their lifes and farms with us, even if its only for one memorable day.

The farmstay was awesome and the host were very friendly. We were at the farm during winter and we had a nice and heated room to keep us warm. We had a great farm tour and was so beautiful to stand at the top of the farm and view the beautiful farms.
