The Farm Cottage
Also located on Mataia Farm and just 2km north of Mataia
Homestead, the Farm Cottage offers quirky comfortable back-packer
style accommodation for up to 11 people.
Like many farm cottages, this one was moved onto Mataia Farm as
the land was developed and more man-power needed to run the farming
operation. Originally from the Grafton Bridge area, the house was
picked up and moved in two pieces in the early 1960s to the northern
end of the farm which was then surrounded by low-lying scrub lands.
Sited for magnificent views over the Kaipara Harbour out towards
the Kaipara heads, the cottage has had a modern renovation and
features an open-plan kitchen, dining and living area which spills
out to a large outdoor entertaining area.
There are 4 bedrooms featuring a mix of single and bunk beds and
one bathroom including shower and bath.
