Cairnhill Farm

Hello and Welcome

CAIRNHILL FARM is situated at the head of Hallam Cove in the amazing and beautiful outer Marlborough Sounds.

This is a fabulous place to relax, swim, dive, snorkel, fish, kayak and get away from it all.
There are good walks, or laze about or in the hammock and read a book.  Just Paradise...

We  have a number of various animals at any one time.
Always included are some character farm pets.

We never fail to be amazed at the beauty that surrounds us here.

Have a look at our photos of the animals, past and present.

A Little About Our Location And Surrounds

We are walking distance to several nice little beaches in Hallam Cove.

Easy access to some nice walks or hiking trails. 

We are close to the famous and historical French Pass which is a pass between the Mainland and D 'Urville Island.

The farm is elevated and up to the saddle midway between Hallam Cove and Admiralty Bay with stunning panoramic views.

The life style is simple, natural and rejuvenating. We like to get things done while having a lot of fun doing them.

When it is your time to come you will be welcomed to CAIRNHILL  for adventure and experience.
Bookings are essential and must be confirmed directly with the volunteer(s) before a booking is assured and accepted.
