“Welcome to a small country town within the Heart of the Waikato”
This tiny restored Miners cottage has some spots suitable for tents or campervans. Shared Bathroom with owners , two toilets. Cooking facilities available including Gas hob, and BBQ, fridge and freezer space available. Happy to have campers use free unlimited WIFI and watch TV with hundreds of movies on Hard drive.
The House is at Benneydale a 30 min drive south of Te Kuiti. A lovely valley only 1-1.5 hrs drive from many major Tourist spots like Waitomo Caves and towns Taupo, Rotorua and the mountains.
Close by is the Cycle trail Timber Trail which is an 85km ride through the ancient forests of the Timber Trail following old tramlines and a specially designed track, a perfect weekend destination right in the centre of the North Island. There is incredible scenery with eight large suspension bridges, the splendour of the forest, and the sounds of birdcalls. For cyclists wishing to ride only a day section, they can begin in the middle of the trail at Piropiro campsite on Kokomiko Road.
The town has a shop with Takeaways, a cafe, a Gas station open weekdays, and emergency services.
