Located half way between Wellington and Taupo you’ll find luxury camping at Ridge Top Farm.
A peaceful retreat that combines the tranquility of glamping with a true North Island Kiwi farm experience. Escape to the countryside at Ridge Top Farm, one of Canopy Camping Escapes around New Zealand.
Located on the 1500 acre sheep and beef farm, the country themed campsite is run by Sarah and Angus Gilbertson and enjoys stunning panoramic views encompassing Kapiti Island, Mt Egmont and Mt Ruapehu.
In the summer, two luxury tents, a camp kitchen and bathroom, and a dedicated campfire area, create a social and relaxed space. In May the bell tent comes down, and the larger tent with its platform deck and woodburning fire can accommodate a couple for a cosy winter get-away.
Visitors can enjoy cooking a meal on the campfire with the kids, or just lie back in the outdoor bath with a cold drink and a good book.
There’s also plenty to do at Ridge Top Farm with tamps through the scenic farmland on offer, clay bird shooting or a shearing demonstration. Sleeping up to ten, Ridge Top is a perfect escape for a few nights or longer.
