Tangowahine Farm and Rural retreat


Base yourself handy to Dargaville prior to cycling the Twin Coast Cycle Trail. Relax and enjoy our haven of tranquility on a grass fattening sheep and beef farm in Northland - central to Dargaville, Kaikohe and Whangarei; the ideal base for a Northland cycling holiday. One third of the property is covered with native forest and backs into the Maungaru range (Houto Forest) You are welcome to explore.

Moderb Farm cottage accommodation; upmarket and self contained. 

We are on a sealed route that takes you through to the Bay of Islands from the Kaipara, It is not a State highway so traffic is very light. There are a number of places to stop and take a break however when you are booking with us mention the route you will be taking and we will advise you of local places of interest to look out for.

This is a working farm so if you need running repairs we have most tools that might be needed. Cellphone reception is intermittant throughout Northland however the locals are friendly and if you run into problems I will come and get you
