Underhill Valley Earth House
Maybe you’ve just completed a North Island tour of the magical Hobbiton movie set or Waitomo glow worm caves – or maybe you just want to escape the modern world for a bit. In either case – we have just the thing…
Step out of the hustle and bustle of your real life, and straight into a fairytale, with a stay at the enchanting Underhill Valley. Built into the hillside, this hobbit-style accommodation has been beautifully hand crafted with rustic native timbers and ironwork, to create a sustainable and authentic space. Created over 15 years ago, Underhill has remained a closely guarded family secret – until now.
Underhill Valley is the perfect, romantic, glamping retreat for couples. Huge timber doors open wide to overlook a picturesque pond and farmland beyond. You’ll enjoy the warmth and ambience of an old coal range… the soft glow of candlelight… a glass of wine on a seat by the pond, under the stars. Or just snuggle into the luxurious, specially shaped bed – with pure cotton linen, comfy pillows and thick, wool duvet.
Underhill is a truly special and unique place to unwind, switch off and reconnect. So… treat yourself. Immerse yourself in the stillness and peace of Underhill Valley and take some time to fully enjoy life’s simple pleasures.
