Relax and enjoy a cosy cottage in a peaceful farm setting, nestled in the heart of The Catlins Forest.
We have a wide range of accommodation available to suit any traveller, with chalets, motel suites, cottages, backpackers cabins, powered and non-powered campervan sites, and tent sites.
Our comfy, self contained chalets boast well appointed kitchens, dining and lounge areas. Our motel suites feature double or twin beds with quality linens and electric blankets, towel sets, toiletries, a heater, tea and coffee facilities, and a mini fridge - plus they are wheelchair friendly. All motel guests have access to a separate, well equipped kitchen that is exclusively for use by those in motel suites. The Bellbird Cottage is our two bedroom, self-contained, self catering cottage that has a fully appointed kitchen with a cooktop and a microwave, as well as a dining and living area.
We also have backpacker-style cabins for those on a budget. The cabins share the well appointed park facilities, including showers, toilets and kitchen. Each cabin comes with towels, shampoo and soap, a heater and electric blankets, plus tea and coffee facilities. Our last style of accommodation is our very popular camping area with powered and non-powered campervan sites, tent sites, and modern Flush Dump Station. Campers have access to our communal lounge, outdoor area, well equipped communal kitchen, and wheelchair-accessible toilet and bathroom blocks that have piping hot showers. If your pet is accompanying you on your travels, no worries! They will be welcome here with us - just bring their comfy bed!
We are also proud to present The Whistling Frog Cafe and Bar, our warm and inviting restaurant where our focus is bringing you fresh and flavoursome meals that use local, home-made and home-grown ingredients. This creative restaurant features chef Tom Peake's award winning cuisine, from his best 'Kiwi Pie' winner to his craft-beer battered blue cod and chips. Enjoy farm to table beef, lamb, and free-range chicken, as well as vegetarian salads, risotto, and gluten-free options. Taste our fine selection of New Zealand wines, craft-brewed tap beers or fresh-brewed, “Zee” espresso coffees, made by our trained baristas.
Located on the Southern Scenic Route, we are the ultimate base for discovering the spectacular natural attractions through out The Catlins, with the Cathedral Caves and McLean Falls right on our doorstep and other stunning waterfalls and bays only a short drive away.
