When you come glamping with us you have access to Pukatea Hill. Its very easy to spend all your time here at the glamping site. . Relax, check out our interesting book collection, play a board game, relax in the bath for hours (surprisingly easy to do!) just sit back in a comfy chair outside with your chosen refreshments and unwind...If you seek a more active time take a walk in the early evening surrounded in bush, birdsong, wild goats and our herd of horses. When darkness falls grab the provided headlamps and take a 10 minute easy walk to check out the glowworms lighting up the creek and the bush. There are also activities we provide for an additional cost.
