Chattan Farm, Bay of Plenty

Glamping at Chattan Farm

From $190 p/n
Sleeps up to 5

Chattan Farm is a 780 hectare sheep and beef farm in the beautiful Bay of Plenty. Three hundred hectares of this amazing property is covered in native bush, protected under a QE II covenant. Almost predator-free, the bush is teeming with native bird-life, including the rare and protected kokako.

Tim and Jo Mackintosh, owners of Chattan Farm, have created a tranquil glamping escape on their patch of Kiwi paradise. The campsite is tucked into a protected spot next to pristine native bush - bathing the area in deliciously cool shade for the hot days of the Bay of Plenty summer. A large wooden framed luxury tent with wood burning stove, and a quirky camp kitchen and bathroom, were all created from timber milled on the property. Sleeping up to five, the tent is the perfect size for a family, couple or group of friends. Serene and peaceful, you’ll wake up to the sound of the dawn chorus rising from the bush canopy.

Keen walkers could walk all day on this property through miles of marked (and mapped) bush tracks. Bird-watchers will love the prolific and varied bird life. Families will find plenty to do – exploring the property with its trees to climb and streams to splash around in.

Horse riders can bring their own horses and ride the many trails around the property - through pristine bush and many hectares of beautiful farmland.

You'll have fun exploring the local area too! The property is just 40 minutes to Rotorua and Tauranga, and 35 to Whakatane. Lake Rotoma is just a short 17km drive in one direction with the coast a similar distance in the other.

So gather the family or rally your friends, and go glamping in the lush bush surrounds of Chattan Farm. What better way to enjoy the stunning Bay of Plenty scenery, and make the most of its balmy, sub-tropical climate.
