About Te Tiro B&B

Te Tiro was built to capture the unique beauty of its surroundings. As a family, we felt we should share with others the magic of what has kept us here on the family farm for 5 generations. 

In any kind of weather the views are breathtaking. The area includes 1000 acres of farm and 660 acres of native bush which have been put into the QE II Trust to protect it for generations to come.

Our farm is a fantastic example of what Waitomo is renowned for: caves, glowworms, rough limestone out-crops, lush green fields and friendly people. At present we have a number of walking tracks through our native bush. There are also a number of rock climbing areas which are mapped out for those interested. Caves are scattered throughout the farm and can be accessed by guided trips organised by us.
