This review is solely about the Flax Cove Cottage as we didn't get to see the main farm house. Note that all pics on their website are of the main house & none are of Flax Cove Cottage. We stayed at the cottage with extended family & it is a good thing we're comfortable with each other as the sleeping...

We had an amzing stay at the farmstay over the waitangi weekend. The property is well looked after and also a little quirky. It has some lovely features, from the unique art work to the lovingly restored floors. Chris is fantastic host, accommodating and friendly. He even dropped off an item we had left in the room on his way...

Chris provides a truly unique experience. Very comfortable, breakfast outstanding, incredible views, interesting people. Evidence of Chris's creative nature is evident throughout the property. Variety of lodging options, some with private bath in the house. We stayed in a family cabin with shared bath which worked well for us (family of three). We chose to interact with others, which we...

Of the eight places we stayed during our New Zealand visit, this was the most interesting and the most difficult to review. We are two couples who on the last night of our New Zealand holiday picked Raglan Farmstay because of its proximity to Aukland and our flight home the next day. Driving in past the broken down bus and...

This is definitely a place to bring different generations and types of people together. The accommodation is as different and varied as its customers. The atmosphere is casual and friendly. Chris, the owner, is a great entertainer and at the same time, knows how to run a business where people of different backgrounds can feel welcome. Our room was spacious...

As a woman of 54, after push biking solo over 1200 miles of the North Island, arriving here was almost like coming home. Totally casual, clean and comfortable.

Although the farm stay has a beautifull website and they are still actively working to modify the property to a optimal accommodation, the stay was nothing we could have expected. The so called cabins are sheds not much bigger than a 2p bed, a chair and a cupboard. The host wasn't clear of what he expected and he certainly didn't...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Raglan Farmhouse offers unique accommodation in the relaxed environment of Te Whare Farm, within walking distance of Raglan township, directly in front of the 50km sign as you arrive. Amazing harbour views await you, where the massive out door living area gives you a picture perfect view of the sun setting across the estuary and behind Mt Karioi. Te Whare Farm is a tolerent and creative place, where we invite people from all walks of life to share and enjoy this piece of paradise with us, Sexism Racism or Homophobia will not be tolerated here ! There is space to retreat in our sheltered garden of old fruit trees or socialize with other guests in our family style living areas, where you can cook up a feed on the BBQ followed by a soak in the 8 person hot tub, all while watching the sun set. Raglan Farmstay is also available to be rented entirely for groups and private functions. Te Whare Farm is not really suitable for young children.Unless you have rented the entire location for the exclusive use of your group. However the Flax Cove Cottage is suitable for children if parents agree to full supervision and responsibility. None of our other rooms up at the main Farmhouse are suitable for young children. ... more   less

“Its definitely worth booking one of the two rooms in the main farmhouse. However we did have a look about at the other accommodation available. Yes, it may be more basic but it a homestay, not a hotel chain!!!”
