Our fourth trip, that says everything. Great place to be. Always enjoyable, great hosts. Lovely great room and fire for wet days, good facilities, pheasants to shoot if that’s your thing.
We are a family group, my parents and aunts in their 60s and 70s. My aunts were totally impressed by the location of Rathmoy which is really stunning, by the river and cliff and large piece of farmland, and no signs except for the "Lodge" and before seeing the Lodge, they were worried that we wen the wrong way. The house is just fabulous. All furniture and facilities are excellent and it is really spacious. It is a pity that we only stay for one night. It is a perfect place for family gathering and other functional activities. I would definitely recommend it to my friends.
Booked for an early 40th celebration where the males could enjoy a walked up pheasant hunt and the ladies could relax during the day. All there had a great weekend and were simply blown away by the location, accommodation, and the amazing food supplied. The people we dealt with were amazing as well and we couldn't have asked for anything better. Definitely some cool memories made! We will definitely visit again!
We, a family group, travelling with our Mother, 88 year old ex farmer of the region were en route to Masterton, Mums home town. This was for family take a break in our journey and to remember the years spent growing up, farm kids, in the Manawatu. Ours was a short stay but a quality one filled with reminiscence, quiet times by the large fire speaking of long treasured memories awakened by being in this beautiful place.
The Lodge and surrounds are magnificent. We loved our brief stay and are avowed to return and take part in all that Rathmoy offers.
Rathmoy was a brilliant venue for a family reunion and a 'renewal of vows' ceremony for our son and his wife while they are visiting from Britain. Fifty people enjoyed the venue's view of the farm and the majestic Rangitikei river papa cliffs. During the afternoon guests were able to wander across the grassy field down to the river to converse and relax. The Lodge's large 'outdoor' entertainment room was ideal for laying out the buffet meal and drinks table. The shaded barbecue area under the trees by the river was perfect for the afternoon ceremony. The couple, their baby and other members of the family also enjoyed staying the night in the very well-appointed bedrooms and bunkroom. Several guests had a refreshing swim in the Rangitikei River. A most enjoyable experience.
