WE are now fully booked though to the 25th January -- so sorry please only contact us if you are looking to come after that time

Looking for couples/ two friends - it just works better for us - to come for about 7-10 days - We have plenty of work and projects - and so one visit every 3 or 4 weeks will be ideal for us - PS - you will also need to help me launch the boat and go fishing if the weather allows - a reel drag :)

We are a middle aged UK couple who emigrated from the UK 12 years ago for a better more sustainable life - We were lucky enough to buy a 10 acre old campsite in a piece of paradise called Huia which we are slowly converting into a self sufficient and hopefully eco friendly retreat although its a very long project! So far we have established several gardens, two young orchards, chickens and we are working on the power thing! we have also spent a long time repairing BAches, fixing roads, drainage solutions and all the other stuff that goes on when you are lucky enough to have a bit of land.

Our three daughters have grown up but all have their own units on the Land , with harriette still living in our lovely Yurt - that was our family home for the first 6 years we lived here. Mandy is now at home full time working on her stone carving and woodturning - as well as looking after the small horse Willow ( technically she is a dog but ... )

Finally our own Grand Design for when i retire is to get as far off the grid as we can and create a place that is in balance with nature, fully sustainable and where our grandchildren's grandchildren can grow up and create as many happy memories as we already have of Huia.
