Location… on top of the world …

We are on the Western Hutt Hills just above Normandale and Belmont, at 310 Normandale Road, Belmont, Lower Hutt.

There are three routes to reach us - via Maungaraki, Belmont Hills or the Normandale Road bridge from Lower Hutt which passes over the Hutt Road. 

Please note that the ‘Normandale Road Bridge Route’ is a poor road. If using GPS navigation you can avoid this by choosing to “Avoid 60 Normandale road” to re-route another way.

If you are coming from:


the Wellington end of the Hutt Road, we recommend coming via the ‘Maungaraki Route’ (the new Maungaraki offramp and roundabout above the Hutt Road).


the Upper Hutt end of the Hutt Road, we recommend coming via Hill road, onto Sweetacres Drive (‘Belmont Hills’ turnoff from the Hutt road).


Lower Hutt, we recommend coming via Melling, and then north to the Belmont Hills turn off.


Petone, we recommend coming through the Maungaraki roundabout over the Hutt road and via Maungaraki.

Drive carefully, enjoy the views and we look forward to seeing you soon!

…let’s make a time…

If you are curious to see the ins and outs of your furry friend’s holiday spot, you are welcome to join us for a tour. We take around 45 minutes to have a good thorough walk around, and go into detail about what we do and where we do it.

We are limited to particular times on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays that best work around the needs of our guests, so we can’t leave this as an open invitation. So please do contact us to make a time. (Saturdays especially can book out weeks ahead).

We usually have two or three customers coming through at a time, which is ideal to share great questions. So please do come on time – it takes about 12-15minutes to reach us from the Hutt Road, and directions can be printed out from our directions page.

Please contact us  ( to arrange a time.
