We had a lovely stay at Tumbledown farm. When we got there there was a roaring log stove to welcome us and the rooms were very cosy. There was everything we needed and we were very comfortable. When we got back on the second evening the fire had been reset and the place was again very cosy. Vilna and her husband made us very welcome and we would certainly like to visit again if we ever get the opportunity. On the day of our departure Vilna gave us some freshly baked muffins which were much enjoyed. Thank you Vilna!

A beautiful setting just 15 minutes drive from Rotorua. Well equipped and homely, we were welcomed by cake and a roaring fire. Very restful and quiet, with lush countryside all around to wander through. Nothing is too far away if you have a car, and Vilna and Pierre made us feel very welcome. Would highly recommend!

Excellent hosts, super friendly. Accommodation was lovely, very comfortable and a real home from home. Very peaceful surroundings but close enough to town.

About 20 minutes out of town, Tumbledown Farm was the perfect place to explore the Rotorua area from. The Farm was kid friendly and there were toys available and plenty of info regarding local sites and activities. The fire in the wood stove welcoming us back from a long day of adventures was particularly appreciated.

So lovely and homely. Wonderful personal touches and care throughout the unit. Vilna is very kind and welcoming. The gardens, trees and meadows are beautiful. We came in spring and would love to come back in autumn and summer.
