Eating and Drinking
The Telephone Exchange is self-catering, but your hosts, Emily and Dylan do offer a fantastic Country Hamper that you can use to augment your BYO groceries. Filled with Wolfhaar Farm eggs, meat and seasonal vegetables, you can order this during the booking process if you're keen to try their homegrown produce.
Otherwise, bring your own food, and cook meals using the BBQ and facilities provided in your private camp kitchen. You'll find all the cutlery, crockery, pots and pans that you'll need.
If you want a break from cooking at any stage, drop into the Bullring Restuarant and Bar - about a 15-minute drive away. You can dine in or take out - the burgers are amazing and the fish and chips are good too.
If you don't mind driving a bit further, Taupo is just a 25-minute drive away, and there are plenty of cafes and restaurants to choose from there. The Storehouse cafe comes highly recommended by your hosts - great coffee! If you're looking for a dining experience, The Brantree is great for a nice meal out.
There are both Pak n Save and Countdown supermarkets in Taupo for stocking up on supplies.
