About Us

The South Claragh Farm and its "family members"

Turn into our leafy driveway and relax . . .
Comfortable farmhouse homestay and cosy self-contained cottage accommodation,
offering comfort, privacy, relaxation, delicious meals, in tranquil country garden setting

South Claragh and Bird Cottage offer guests the experience of heartland New Zealand - off the beaten track, but easily accessible and with all the comforts of home.

Our farmhouse is set in rambling mature gardens, full of flowers in spring, cool and colourful in summer, brilliant leafy hues in autumn, still and misty in winter.

Our tree-studded small farm is situated in the countryside close to the Pureora Forest Park, 35k Northwest of Taupo on State Highway 32 - which offers direct routes to Auckland, Wellington, Taupo, Rotorua, Waitomo Caves and New Plymouth but without the volume of traffic on State Highway 1.
