 Whanga Bridge House 250x445


Right in the heart of Whangamomona is the delightful, newly and extensively renovated Whanga Bridge House which is easily recognised by it's unique, deliberately designed, dotty roof - all part of keeping Whangamomona authentic!

All on one level with three bedrooms, a full kitchen and a lovely warm wood burning fireplace, Whanga Bridge House can sleep a maximum of seven.

Enjoy a BBQ dinner (ask Forgotten World Adventures about their BBQ packs that can be delivered while you are on the rails) on the covered deck overlooking the river and all three of the Whangamomona bridges (two road and one rail) or take a gentle stroll a few metres down the street to the Whangamomona Hotel.

Your hosts Ceri and Pork can be contacted on 06 762 5552  or by email whangabridgehouse@farmside.co.nz
