Nestled in the hills above Parua Bay with its Tavern and cafes and located on Whangarei's scenic Mt Tiger/Owhiwa just 20 mins harbourside drive from town, Arches Lodge – Ridgeland Farm Retreat, makes a perfect homebase to explore Northland. Most areas can be visited with a day trip from Ridgeland Farm. But why leave ‘home’! The area offers so much. Historic school across the road and the original farm was founded in 1863 though many changes have been made. Your accommodation is in a separate guest dwelling with its own drive, and private entrances and decks. The moment you enter the tree lined drive, lined by silver ferns, Kauri trees and native wonders you know you have found something special. Peaceful rural views over native forest reserves to Mt Manaia beyond.
Today Ridgeland farms sheep, beef and free range turkeys. Your breakfast will include fresh home made bread, farm eggs and local treats as available.
Enjoy a game of golf, just 9 minuets away, or explore the wondrous walks of the Whangarei Heads. This is truly a hidden gem not to be missed!
