We also have chickens, a Rooster, Scottish Highland steers, cattle and ducks. We have a small functioning vege garden. We live 30 minutes to the closest city, Hastings, 20 minutes to our closest village, Havelock North, 10 minutes to our closest beach and shop, Waimarama Beach and Ocean Beach and 2 minutes to our 9 hole golf course and bush walks.

I am Māori and my husband is Cornish. Together we make a great team. We are both generous hosts and very hospitable. I am eager to incorporate my culture to those who are interested and also introduce our cultural cuisine, which, depending on the season, could include a traditional Māori hangi, if you are keen to help. Oh and my husband cooks the yummiest Yorkshire puddings.
