We stayed at Rangitikei for a friend's wedding in January and it was absolutely amazing. Kylie was very helpful and the set-up at the Farmstay is really great. I would recommend for families, couples or groups of friends, they have accommodation for everyone. It is situated amongst beautiful NZ scenery, so you are able to experience living on a working...

We spent two nights at Rangitikei Farmstay on our way to Taupo. It's a great halfway stop from Wellington. The hosts, accommodation and setting were all fantastic. Our girls loved pony rides, feeding the sheep and the little dog Porky. Would definitely recommend and would stay again.

We enjoyed our Christmas afternoon/ evening function spent at Rangitikei Farm Stay. Claybird shooting and Hole in One Golf went down a treat with everyone, followed by a delicious BBQ in beautiful, rustic surroundings. Kylie and Andrew are excellent hosts and their property will delight anyone who visits. Highly recommened to anyone.

We went for the Kiwi combo, spent almost every day with the animals, kids loved the place, wife loved the fantastic view. Strongly recommend the short walk, remember to bring boots or similar to handle the farm walk, it is a farm after all with lots of animals. Highly recommended!
