Welcome to Smiths Farm Holiday Park

Welcome to Smiths Farm Holiday Park


Chris, Barbara and family welcome back all our valued guests!
Whilst we remained open during the Covid 19 Emergency and accommodated many guests, we still encourage contact tracing and employ heightened levels of cleaning protocols and every other care to ensure that your health and safety are paramount. We look forward to seeing you soon!

If you desire the space, peace and the health giving properties of clean country air, then Smiths Farm Holiday Park is the place for you.
Chris and Barbara and their family and staff are proud to offer you a quality holiday full of friendship, fun and a lifetime of memories.
The Park has been a multiple year finalist in the NZ Automobile Association's Spirit of Hospitality Award. This award recognises excellence of service in the industry and Chris and Barbara strive for this. They were also awarded the Rankers Supreme Holiday Park award in 2016. They are a Tripadvisor 5 star accommodation and activity business.

Situated on a working beef farm, the Park is a base from which to relax, explore the beautiful Marlborough Sounds or the wider wine region of the Marlborough area of New Zealand. It is also an ideal stopover if you are travelling to or from the North Island. We are 30 minutes from the Bluebridge or Interislander ferries in Picton. Not sure of what to do? Ask Barbara or Chris and they will be sure to give you all sorts of tips about things to see or do in their region.

The Park, constructed in 1997, is spacious and quiet. Numbers are limited at all times and the modern facilities are kept in an immaculate, tidy condition. Additional new toilets and showers were added in 2020/21 and a new office block is planned to cater for guests requirements. There are four comfortable standard cabins, two self contained units, two motels and a self contained cottage. The Park also offers flat, powered and non powered sites which are ideal for campers, caravans and campervans. Accommodation and sites fill up early so be sure to book to avoid the disappointment.

There are a number of farm and bush walks highlighting the natural history and the farming heritage of the area to explore during your stay. The Park itself has a private (for staying guests only) walk that goes past farm animals into the lush native bush on a trail to a beautiful 20m waterfall and a magnificent glow worm grotto. Birdlife abounds and keen birders will delight in the species found within the Park.

Smiths Farm is also only located 4km from the Anakiwa end of the stunning Queen Charlotte Track. Barbara and Chris can help you organise a day walk or a longer excursion and can also book water taxis, sea kayaks or mountain bike rental for you. Courtesy pick up or drop off at Anakiwa is by arrangement and it is a great spot to stop for the night if you are walking the Te Araroa Trail.

For those of you still looking for other options there is the Link Pathway which passes our front gate (& which links through to Anakiwa and the Queen Charlotte Track as well as to Picton and Havelock and is excellent for walking and cycling. E bikes can also be ridden on the Link Pathway.).There is boating, fishing, and enough natural history to fill your soul for days.

This is my last stop before heading back to the North island and is quite simply the best park of the island. From the muffins on arrival to the clean facilities and cosy fire. Absolutely top notch. Thanks for the most welcoming, friendly stay of our trip”. (Adam, Lincoln, U.K)
