What to bring

Start with a sense of humour and adventure. This is the great outdoors and a working farm. There is dust, dirt, water, mud, and cow poo.

Bring old stuff, not your best clothes and shoes.

Outdoor clothes

Layers like T-shirts and jerseys.

At least one full change of clothes in case you get dirty or wet.

Outdoor shoes like gumboots, trainers, walking shoes.

A good coat in winter, water proof, wind proof, that you can throw in the washing machine when you get home.

Sunscreen, sunglasses, sunhat or cap.


Bring your mountain bikes, Frisbee and other outdoor toys. For evenings bring your tablets, iPad's, Notebooks or other wireless devices and stay in touch with free internet access.


The kitchen is fully equipped and there is a fridge/freezer for you to use. A supermarket is 15-20 minutes drive away at Dinsdale where there are also many takeaway food outlets. Raglan beach is about 45 minutes drive where there are many restaurants and takeaway outlets.
