Accommodation Description:

Highgate hill farm is a 2200 acre working farm high in the hills of Wairamarama, 35 minutes south of Pukekohe with panoramic views over the Tasman Sea. The farm is located only an hours drive from central Auckland and so is just perfect for a getaway from the city or for tourists wanting to experience a piece of rural New Zealand.
Michael and Lloyd, your hosts, run this large farm which is home to over 2000 sheep and 1100 cattle. It is a farm with working dogs, free range chickens and at the right time of year, hundreds of new lambs and baby calves not to mention the pet animals. Krusty the goat is a must see on any itinerary and a visit to see the dogs and chickens is also high up on the list. Whilst here you are in safe hands as Michael has been a farmer all his life, growing up on a dairy farm in Te Awaumutu until buying his own sheep and beef farm with his partner Lloyd some two years ago. Lloyd also owns a retail design store in London, so the house is tastefully furnished. He also owned a gastro pub in central London so his home cooked meals are a must. Whilst here, guests can accompany Michael and Lloyd on one of the quad bikes and partake in a farm tour or can relax with a cocktail by the pool. Alternatively there is a large sun deck with sweeping views through the Wairamarama valley where you can just relax listening to music or read a good book.
