River Bothy Glamping
The River bothy is the epitome of a romantic getaway.
Nestled amongst an olive grove on the banks of the Oruaiti river is the secluded riverside cabin.
The jewel in the crown are the uninterrupted views across the river and countryside.
In addition, an adjoining covered breezeway offers a cooking space with the ability to prepare delicious meals for two, or simply chill with a glass of wine while soaking up the incredible river views.
Last, but not least, escape into the outdoor bath or hang out alfresco on the deck and star gaze the incredible night sky.
The River Bothy is also dog friendly. Escape the rush with your fur baby to the beautiful far north. Dogs are welcome at the River Bothy. They must be fully vaccinated, stock friendly and good with chickens, cows and other farm animals. They must be kept under control at all times, crated at night and sleep outside on the covered deck area.
The River Bothy is set in the Far North, approximately 4 hours from Auckland and just 5 minutes from nearby Mangonui Village.
Nestled amongst 500 Olive trees, the bothy is far from the basic Scottish hut it’s named for. The off-grid riverside cabin is beautifully decorated – with all the comforts of home at hand.
Made from materials reclaimed from the nearby 1890’s settlers’ farmhouse, the kitchen is a covered space, giving year-round cooking facilities and a relaxing area to soak up the uninterrupted countryside views. The bathroom and shower are right next door, and the outdoor bath is perfectly positioned to enjoy the river views as it meanders gently past.
If you want to get out and about – the scenic Northland area offers lots to see and do - coastal walks, scenic lookouts and white sandy beaches.
At the end of your day, let nature be your companion. Soak up the views over the olive grove, watch dusk settle across the water, and relax by the brazier under the stunning night sky.
