Birch Hill, Central Hawke's Bay

Glamping at Birch Hill Station

From $200 p/n
Sleeps up to 9

Birch Hill Station is the quintessential Central Hawke's Bay sheep and beef farm. Accessible to both Auckland and Wellington - it's perfectly situated for families or friends to gather for a country escape. Farm-friendly, fully vaccinated dogs are welcome too - which means no member of the family needs to be left behind!

The luxury campsite is set on a sheltered and picturesque corner of the farm. Ideal for groups, the site can accommodate up to 9 people, in one large wooden-framed tent and two smaller 'sleeper' tents. A fantastic fully enclosed kitchen, dining and camp lounge provides a communal gathering area.

Stunning views from the front of the site stretch out over the rolling farmland of the Porangahau countryside. The back of the site is ringed with mature kanuka and pine trees dotted with hammocks for lounging in the hot summer weather. A gully behind these trees makes the perfect exploring spot for kids, while parents relax with a cool beverage, and enjoy the sun setting on the amber hills. By day you'll see and hear the distant farm animals and native birds. At night you'll hear owls (morepork) and see amazing stars in the clear country skies.

With 15km of safe, great quality fenced farm tracks, Birch Hill Station is an outdoor paradise for active people. 1300 hectares of scenic farmland and native bush offer great variety for walkers or mountain bikers. If you're a horse rider, you're welcome to bring your horse to enjoy the scenery on horse-back.

If you prefer a less active glamping holiday, enjoy a quiet picnic by the stream, and wile away the time with a good book, listening to the sound of native birds in the bush surrounds.

The surrounding area is great to explore too! Within 20 minutes drive of the property you'll find the place with the longest place name in the world - Taumatawhakatangihangakoauauotamateapokaiwhenuakitanatahu (try saying that!). You'll also find Porangahau village and the stunning Porangahau beach for some summertime swimming action - or wintertime beach walks.
