A great family getaway. The perfect touch of luxury with bucket loads of tranquility
We took our 9, 11 and 21 year old, along with our two dogs. There really is something for everyone and great amenities. The kids were fascinated with the gas top toaster and we all enjoyed the lawn games and hammocks. The tents and shared lounge, kitchen and dining were perfect for us all and we had so much more space then I expected. Make sure to connect with Max to see what else is on offer around the farm -you won't be disappointed.
Another Amazing Trip
A huge thanks again to Libby and Ben for an awesome time at Birch Hill. We had an amazing time exploring parts of the farm we hadn't seen before. Loved the trip up the creek looking for stones the kids had a blast. We love being able to bring the horses and ponies along with us, thank you for making this so easy with a great paddock for them. Max and Andy were again great driving us around the farm setting up picnics by beautiful streams! We will be back soon.
Thank you for creating amazing memories.
We had an fantastic stay at Birch Hill. We have been in NZ for a few times with our young family. The kids have not stopped talking about their experience in Birch Hill. Ben and Libby are very thoughtful and gracious host. The design of the campsite exceeds our expectation. It is beautiful and practical. We spent our day walking around the huge farm and the evening around the outdoor patio and fireplace. It's a perfect opportunity to live off the grid. The sunrise, sunset and the stars are stunningly beautiful. We are very happy about our stay and will do it again . I highly recommend the experience!
GLAMPING WITH STYLE AND A TWIST!
It was truly an amazing getaway to have found Birch Hill via Liz and Sonia from Canopy Camping Escapes. My family has not stopped talking about the experience and wished we could have stayed ‘forever’! We all fell in love with the whole campsite. The owners, Libby & Ben were not around when we checked-in, but Max and Andy made us feel warmly welcomed. It was an easy 3.5 hrs drive from Wellington via the A2 taking the Wairarapa route to Hawkes Bay with stunning scenes along the way. For a family of 5 adults, we had plenty of space to ourselves and everywhere we looked there were beautiful touches of home from home, so relaxing and comfortable. One would be forgiven for not doing anything at Birch Hill, as you could easily have a nap in the hammock, or slump on the beanbags, cook on the outdoor grill, eat al fresco whilst admiring the varied landscape in front of your eyes. We all went for a 45 mins stroll along the streams and up to Boar Hill Spring to be rewarded with a spectacular view of the sea and farm lands. For two days we felt like the last surviving people on Earth, confused as we were ‘off the grid’ with no mobile phones, tv, electricity with just the sun energising the solar lanterns and the stars giving us the glimmer of lights with various sounds of wildlife emanating from all around us, and yet we could have hot showers and bath at a twist of the taps! There were moments when we felt living primitively, making fire, improvising our own entertainment with the selection of games provided on the site but at the same time we have the modernity and luxury of the 21st century! It was indeed mind boggling and magical! As a travel agent, we’ve travelled a lot and visited so many majestic places, but Birch Hill is a special place we will treasure the memories of and will highly recommend to our clients! …
