Nightingale Farmstay Retreat is truly off the beaten track. Located just outside of Thames in Tararu Bay, you travel up the middle of a gently sloping valley that meanders along a riverbed. It is a five kilometre journey along the gravel or metal road until you come all the way to the very end and can truly go no further. Then you have reached the large blue gate and the beginning of your adventure. Your hosts will meet you at the entrance to welcome you. If you have a four wheel drive you will be escorted to your accommodation. If not Nightingale Falls has a free shuttle for your convenience. Off the beaten track, yet only 15 minutes from Thames. Free and secure parking.

Does it get any better than this!
Booked to stay in this fabulous venue for 2 nights and stayed 4. I would probably would still be there now if not for the demands of a return flight.
Gorgeous views in a tranquil setting. Warm and accommodating hosts, friendly animals and a country setting most of us only dream about.
Cottages are beautifully appointed, tons of hot water, fluffy towels and comfortable beds. If you wish to cook for yourself the enchanting Twickinham cottage has a full kitchen. Both units have ensuites and facility to make tea and coffee. They both boast outstanding views of the hills and the Bay.
Terrific value for money! Would do it again in a heartbeat.
