Good location in quiet road, could hear the trains, not far away but not loud.

  • 4 of 5

Good location in quiet road, could hear the trains, not far away but not loud. Comfortable, cosy basement flat, short drive to town. Only drawback to overall rating was very fine shower head, made washing thick hair a challenge, but all else spot on.

Owner's Response: Thanks for chosing Park View to stay. It was a pleasure to host you both. We are surprised at the comment on the shower head but appreciate it & have taken heed by replacing it with a multi function head. The unit was left very clean & tidy & the bed stripped. It was as if you had never been here. Welcome anytime.

Our accommodation is in a semi rural town with population of 15,000 mainly farmers, retired farmers & people who just want a quieter lifestyle.

We are in a pretty, tree lined, quiet culdesac on a hill which overlooks Feilding just 1.6.kms to the town centre.

Feilding is a very pretty town with many art deco buildings having won NZ's Most Beautiful town 15 times.

There is a large Farmers Market every Friday in the square which has won Best Farmers Market in NZ ever since it began many years ago. It sells only local produce.

It has many boutique shops, pubs and many varied restaurants including Amajen which is a silver service restaurant run by a French couple.

There is a lovely licensed cinema/cafe, Coach House Museum, library, golf course, mini golf and a massive new swimming pool with outdoor pools as well.

Countdown & the new New World are just 2 kms away.

The largest stockyards in the Southern Hemisphere are in Feilding and there are weekly tours.

Manfield Racing circuit is only 2 kms from us and holds motor racing and motor cycle racing round the clock. The NZ Grand Prix is held there. It also holds many equestrian events including world class events, IA&P shows & dressage.

The National Field Days are held there yearly which are only second to Hamilton. Many large markets and other events are also held there.

There is a steam train which does tours on most Fridays, Saturdays & Sundays.

There are many lovely beautiful parks especially at Manfield with aviaries, rose gardens & a walkway lined by lovely camellia trees.

Just 1km from us you can drive up to the look out and view over Feilding, Palmerston North & the windmills in the distance.

We are about 2 hours from Wellington & guests often stay with us as a stop over on their way back home if driving north. We are also 2 hours from Hawkes Bay & just 15 minutes to Palmerston North.

In summary, Feilding is a prosperous, quiet & pretty town where many people from busy cities chose to move for a quieter and more relaxing lifestyle. We moved here and find the people very friendly and have many, many friends and would not move from here.

The Feilding Information Centre is just 1km from us and can provide any information you'd like.
