( Not Suitable for Kids)

Dogs are welcome please bring their own bedding, no dogs allowed on furniture including beds and sofa. Please note that you can not leave your dog alone on the property if necessary we have kennels that can be used if you need to leave your pet for few hours.

Rewa Cottage is located near the Woolshead and the main home.

We are a full working hill farm spread over 1000 hectares. We breed around 4000 Romney sheep and 150 Angus cattle. At times, providing it is safe, you can watch various farm activities like shearing etc.

Weather permitting you are welcome to wander on the hills or get a lift to the top and then make your way slowly down, this trip about 6Km.


You are welcome to walk around the paddock but please check first with us in case some of the animals are not safe to approach. There is a small paddock with a pond just in front of the Cottage where all the animals are friendly and happy to get cuddles. We have a grass tennis court and croquet.

Dogs need to be supervised at all time and must not chase the stock.

I am happy to take you milking, driving up the hills and teach you to spin just let me know once you arrive and we can make a plan. My 2 house cows get milked every other day as they still have calves with them.

Please note that once you leave Masterton there is no mobile phone reception or shops. You can get mobile reception on top of the hill near the Cottage about a 500metre walk on a steep hill.

We have wifi at the main home and you are welcome to use it to check emails etc. Unfortunately is quite slow and unreliable and will not cope with large downloads. There is a table and chairs just outside the kitchen on the main house where you can sit and use it in peace.
