Our accommodation set on picturesque farmland comprises:
two modern and stylish 2 bedroom 4 star self-contained farmstay chalets; equally suitable for couples or a family with children;
two luxury motorhome ensuite sites; and
we also manage a lovely 2 bedroom self contained timber cottage located on an adjoining property.
Where to eat
The Chalets and Valley View Cottage are self-contained and have their own cooking facilities.
For lunch or dinner there are a variety of dining options in nearby New Norfolk, with a list of potential venues available in your accommodation’s information folder to help you choose.
Alternatively, you can order in pizza, or purchase the makings for a BBQ at one of the local supermarkets or butchers and enjoy our superb BBQ facilities.
Rustic “Snowy Mountains style” BBQ hut
Just imagine – sizzling steaks, good wine and great company in front of an open fire in our rustic and traditional BBQ hut, while the kids play in our children’s playground.
Great playground for the kids
Kids just love our playground, with lots of traditional playground equipment, a variety of bats and balls and plenty of room to run around.
Our Menagerie of Animals
And don’t forget to pat our beautiful dogs Sienna and Jack and cats Austin and Tippy – or try hand feeding our friendly alpacas, miniature donkey, sheep, jersey steers, goats and chooks.

At Heimat Chalets we try to make our property as sustainable as possible.
Heimat Chalets is not on town water, and all water is sourced either as rain water or from Heimat Chalets’ dams. We encourage our guests to minimise their water consumption by providing low flow heads on showers, dual flush systems on all toilets, plugs for all basins and sinks and signage to remind guests that they should minimise water use, particularly by having short showers.
Heating in the chalets is primarily from energy efficient reverse cycle air conditioners and guests are encouraged to turn off heating and lights when they are out so as not to waste electricity.
We encourage guests to recycle glass and plastics, and provide a recycling bin for this purpose.
We also encourage our guests to minimise food waste by keeping their food waste for feeding to our chickens for recycling into eggs.
Wood used for the wood fire in the BBQ hut is sourced from fallen trees on our property – we never cut a tree down for firewood.
