Be Still. The quieter you become the more you can hear - is true of your stay at Clover Downs. Enjoy large comfortable rooms designed with a NZ style, providing you with a place to rest and relax in peace, while cows, sheep and deer graze on the green paddocks surrounding the house. Clover Downs enjoys sharing their animals with visitors particularly children who may never have seen an animal of this kind. In the evening after a busy day of sightseeing, enjoy a glass of wine on your own private veranda overlooking lush pasture.Your host, Ruth will ensure that your retreat is comfortable and memorable. She can also help arrange other activities so that you can experience all that Rotorua has to offer - geothermal wonderlands with geysers and bubbling mud pools, the rich Maori culture, excellent fishing, sightseeing and other exciting pursuits. Stay at Clover Downs, enjoy fine country accommodation, get close to nature and breathe the country air. An authentic kiwi experience.
