Linburn farmstay is a refreshing opportunity to discover New Zealand rural lifestyle. Lovely, 1920s home, set in park-like grounds amongst mature trees, nestled in a picturesque valley. Accommodation options are a private guest wing with one queen room, and own bathroom. Children are most welcome. Only one group of guests are accommodated at a time to give you total privacy. An extra queen bedroom with single bed and private bathroom is available for extra friends and family you may have. (We can accomodate up to 8 people). You will be pampered with gourmet meals (by arrangement) and a full breakfast to fuel you for a days exploring over the farm and nature reserve or simply spend time stream-side. We are a working sheep and cattle farm, which has been in the family for over 100 years. The property covers 680 hectares of farmland, including 70 hectares of QEII Native Bush Reserve. Guests are welcome to explore the farm and watch the day-to-day running, take a native walk along the riverbank, or observe country life from the shelter of the veranda. We are an easy 20min drive from Gisborne City centre.
