Green Trout;

This is a four roomed cottage situated on the Rainey farm and can sleep 10 people comfortably.

It is available to anglers on a self-help basis i.e. you bring the food and cook for yourself at the end of the day.

It has a great outlook over the local river along with views up the valley towards the Ruahine mountain range.
