The Cabins are located in the camping ground in our sheltered orchard behind a large macrocapa hedge. There are two choices of cabins, a Quad and Double with all cabins using the shared facilities. Located near the Cabins is a  large glass area in the middle of the orchard which grows tasty mushrooms as summer cools and autumn draws near. Access is directly off the Queen Charlotte Track and through an arch in the hedge and up a feijoa lined drive. Friendly cheeky weka wander freely around the orchard looking for a snack here and there. In autumn the trees are laden with fruit, mushrooms pop up in the grass.
