Absolutely fantastic place to stay for a quiet night if heading to Hobbiton. Lynne and her family were so welcoming and their farm is stunning. The kids even got to play with Lucky the sheep and their giant goat. Would be sure to top up your water and empty any waste before visiting.

An unbelievably tranquil place. The silence apart from nature is a pure pleasure.
It’s like freedom camping with the pleasure of a wonderful host and breakfast.
Lynn was most welcoming, telling us everything about her beautiful animals.
We also enjoyed a very tasty breakfast - far to much food for us :-)
Even had the chance to do some stargazing, before the clouds came in.
I should also mention the very short drive to hobbitton.

We had a lovely time staying at Da Barn. Our two boys loved meeting all the animals, the view and location were beautiful and Lynne was so welcoming. Would highly recommend.

What an absolute delight it was to stay at Da Barn. Lyn and Graham were very welcoming, really lovely, friendly people. An amazing location, very close to HOBBITON with stunning views from their garden. Very reasonable rates. Would definitely recommend!

We were visiting the Hobbit Movie set and needed a place to park our camper.
Thankyou to DaBarn for your welcome and hospitality. The nicest people on the planet. We were made to feel so welcome. We will absolutely visit this place again when we return to NZ.

Nice place to keep your campervan if you want to spend the night close to Hobbiton. We did the evening banquet tour and they were more than happy to drive us there and pick us up.

Thanks so much. Our place is so kid friendly and that’s what we like. Kids learning about animals and kids running around the paddocks.
