About the property

Chalet, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 8)

Idyll Hill Retreat is conveniently located on Cardiff Rd, the direct road link between Dawson’s Falls and Stratford Plateau. This provides access to the mountain's walking tracks and activities. Idyll Hill Retreat House is a self-contained three bedroom house, set up for those who need an office space with the additional benefit of free Wireless broadband (WiFi).

The 5 acre property has two houses on it. Large group...request to rent other house which guests have requested in the past. It has a strong country feel and contains free to roam chickens, beehives and a newly established fruit orchard which you are more than welcome to explore. There is a natural water hole nearby, fed from the mountain springs, and surrounded by a beautiful garden.

NEW KITCHEN

Stratford is 5-10 minutes drive and offers a range of dining options. Please contact the owners if you wish to sample their own cooking that can include wild game cooked to perfection including wild venison. The owners have previously owned an award winning cafe and haven’t lost their touch.

The owners are more than happy to provide information on tramps, walking tracks, skiing/boarding, gardens and some of the best kept local secrets.

The Forgotten Highway starts 8 minutes from your accommodation, and takes you through a truly amazing journey of historic places. Stratford is the best place to start on the Forgotten Highway.

Wake up to the sound of birds, a view of Mt Taranaki, and Mt Ruapehu.

Having a wedding, ask us for details and photos.

The property was clean and tidy with everything we needed to enjoy our stay. The location is great for exploring Mount Taranaki, the Forgotten World Highway and the Taranaki region in general.

Great property location.

  • 4 of 5

Great property location. If you want to do anything in the Taranaki region, this is the place to stay! So close to so many attractions and activities. The house was tidy and had everything needed for our stay, and the property was so private, with plenty of room outside for children to explore.
