Smiths Farm is a modern holiday park situated on a working beef farm on the Queen Charlotte Drive at Linkwater in the Marlborough Sounds. The park is spacious, private, quiet and safe, as facilities, sites and play areas are well away from the road. Farm animals delight children and adults alike.The modern ablution block includes commercial laundry facilities, a large kitchen and dining area, free gas BBQ, television, and private toilets and showers. The limited numbers ensure there are no long waits and allow facilities to be maintained in a clean, hygienic state. A large covered and shaded outdoor seating area is attached to the ablution block. Spacious standard cabins that sleep 4 - 5 are available. Self contained cabins were constructed in late 2000. Motels were constructed in 200
A marked trail leads through the farm into beautiful native bush and wends past glow worm grottos and on to an impressive 20m waterfall. The nearest beach is just 3 km away at Anakiwa with Moetapu Bay only 6 km away. Both are sheltered and safe. A boat washing area is available as is ample parking.
The Queen Charlotte Track is only 3 km away and half day or longer walks can be conducted easily. Davies Bay, a 45 minute walk along the track, is ideal for those wanting to sample the sounds. Mountain bikes are permitted on the track and the hire bikes available 500m from the park are ideal to take for a days touring. Popular sea kayaking can be conducted from Anakiwa.
The size of the park allows the hosts Chris and Barbara Faulls to provide a personal and friendly service to ensure your stay is an enjoyable one. Member HAPNZ.
