Kohutu is the 100 year-old farm of the Martin Family, with a relaxed atmosphere but lots to enjoy. You can help feed the pigs and chickens, and gather the eggs ... Pip also has an extensive veg garden.

We are just over 1 hr from Wellington and 10 minutes from the best kept secret - Waikawa Beach. For a great day out, book a trip to Kapiti Island Bird Sanctuary or walk Paekakariki to Pukerua Bay.

Reviews

A lovely, peaceful place to stay, grass or hard surface, power available. Phillippa and John were very welcoming. Driveway is narrow but manageable for a 7mt caravan if you take it carefully. Thank you, we would love to come back

We spent one night here nicely tucked away on a good spot on the grass. Pip was very friendly and welcoming and the animals were cool for the kids. Recommend it!

We stayed one night on way to Wellington and liked it! The kids enjoyed the animals and playground (basic but works!) We got power and water for the motorhome and got help with pipe issues. Very friendly host !!! :-) Laundry was ok too. Very friendly host !

About your host, Pip




Since 2009, John and myself have provided fresh raw milk to Wellington, Hutt Valley, Kapiti and Horowhenua: we saw a demand and MannaMilk came into being!

Our farm, Kohutu, has been in the family since 1917 when the farm was bought by the estate of Dr Albert Martin, the Surgeon at Wellington Hospital for Guy Martin.
The farm produced milk, and family members and farm workers have been drinking the milk ever since.
