Burlings Bach is the place to stay when you need to escape city living and get back to nature but with all the cosy comforts of a freshly renovated cottage, roaring fire and a hot gas heated shower!
Your choice - stay by the fire and read a great book or a mag with endless cups of coffee merging into a wine when you feel like a change, play board games with the kids, or have a romantic escape with your significant other!!
Burlings Bach is just across the paddock from Ratanui Cottage so while it it very private on it's own it is also a great option for 2-3 families to get together and stay in both places! Sleeps 17 between them! Get together for activities and meals but have your own family time too......
Thank you for a wonderful break away from our crazy city life. The cottage is beautiful and so peaceful. we thoroughly enjoyed our farm walk and the little church has the most beautiful stained glass windows. The little Kune pigs are gorgeous..."
"What an awesome place to stay - beautiful environment, peaceful and relaxing. Loved reading about the history of Waiorongomai, just returned from driving around the countryside ending in a visit to the church - very spiritual. Thank you for opening up Burlings Bach to allow townies like us to come and appreciate what the country has to offer.. we appreciate the little touches ie flowers, biscuits and games which the grandchildren are amusing themselves with (better than playing with their electronic gadgets!)..."
"Thank you Karla & Charlie for letting us stay here. It was really wonderful and nice and cosy. I think the thing I enjoyed most was going to feed the food scraps to the pigs. Most importantly thank you for everything! This little cottage is so clean and tidy. This farm is truly wonderful! I LOVE IT HERE! I wish I could stay here for ever! Thank you so much..."

"Thanks so much for providing such a cosy, welcoming spot for our family get-together. The super efficient fire kept us toasty warm & the little extra touches with the great scones and cookies were really appreciated and happily consumed. :-) A great spot to chill out & relax & take walk on the farm and around-abouts. Read the Waiorongomai book cover to cover. Great being able to imagine the lives of your fore-bears & their contributions to the farm and district..."
