Holiday Rental House
Situated up a tree lined driveway, The school house offers peaceful self contained , self catering accommodation for 1-3 people. It has free parking which is able to accommodate large vehicles including boats. The school house is situated in a rural setting and has beautiful views of the garden and surrounding countryside. Built in the 1880's and operational as a school until 1939, it has a history and character all its own. It is located centrally to the attractions of Hobbiton which is 45 minutes away, and The Waitomo Glow worm caves are just 30 minutes away. Our guests have told us they enjoy the peace, bird song and the sunsets over Mt Pirongia and Kakapuka....Situated up a tree lined driveway, The school house offers peaceful self contained , self catering accommodation for 1-3 people.
