Timber Trail Bike Bach

A touch of class in the country

The Timber Trail Bike Bach is conveniently placed near the beginning of Pureora’s cycleway - gateway to the Timber Trail.

Designed with three flexible room/unit options available, this modernised home was once a typical home from the early days when coal-mining was in full swing, now it’s been transformed as accommodation for the discerning cyclist.


Surrounded by beautiful rolling hills, the Timber Trail Bike Bach is 'a touch of class in the country.'  The whole house is divided into 2 separate rentable units. 

On one side is the Family Unit with its kitchen/lounge and bathroom, an ideal space for 4 - 6 people. On the other side is the Queen/Twin unit catering for up to 4 people. 

For larger groups you can book the Whole of House catering for up to 10 people.

Large spacious decks at the front of the house, and a BBQ area out back help you to relax at the end of the day. There’s also plenty of lockable bike storage available for cyclists doing the Timber Trail.

Packaged prices are available which include shuttles transfers, meals, accommodation and bike hire if required.

While Benneydale is a small rural village, the Cafe situated less than 100m away is the perfect spot for a meal or coffee and works in well for cyclists needing packaged meal options. For extra service Te Kuiti’s shopping centre is an easy 25-30 minute drive away.
