Unique Covered Camping Barns won an Innovation Award
Two large purpose-built barns with 8 sites and spectacular views over the Taramakau River and TranzAlpine railway provide a covered retreat for the West Coast UV rays, rains or alpine snows. Campervans, caravans and tents can park or pitch in private bays, each with its own large window so you don't miss out on the stunning alpine landscape. The complex is designed to cater for everyone whether in a campervan or tent. Each bay contains a mat, water and power. There is plenty of room for you to move about and you can even enjoy our free mobile BBQs under cover.
The large central amenity spaces incorporate a stunning dining area and self-catered kitchen with modern, clean cooking facilities. Large comfortable TV lounge, chairs and sofas are ideally positioned to take advantage of the views and the warmth and ambience of the log fire in winter. Modern bathroom facilities with hair dryers, ultra clean, modern showers are a delight, and the shower and toilet areas are heated in the winter for your comfort.
