I stopped here in my camper van for one night when driving north. It was a querky place with lots of toilets and showers, I was the only one there though! Had a big communal area with sinks available for use. Thank you

Cute old Farmhouse with great character, comfortable and breakfast is provided. Narita is very warm and friendly. Very close to Waitomo caves and an experience not to be missed. Kids love the farm experience.

About
Description
Waitomo Farmstay and Gardens was started in October 2011 when we recognised that not everyone looking for Waitomo accommodation was a thrill seeker! Waitomo Farmstay and Gardens is a family owned business, and More has something for everyone. Waitomo Farmstay is the perfect spot to make your base during your stay in the King Country. Our large and comfortable rustic cottage has lovely country views, and the farm tour we offer our guests is sure to entertain. Because we are are situated only a short car ride from the world famous Glow Worm Caves, and the townships of Otorohanga and Te Kuiti it makes sense that you should book your stay at our Waitomo Farmstay and Gardens today! If you are just passing through the King Country be sure to come and see our Gardens which are currently under development. We are slowly gathering a collection of vintage farm machinery and other items of interest which we plan to showcase amongst the trees and flowers of our gardens. We gladly accept any suggestions, donations, or voluntary work - and are more than happy to acknowledge this within the gardens. We cater to all ages - so why not pack a picnic and take some time to meet our friendly animals and take a gentle stroll around our gardens. We look forward to meeting you! Less
