Perched on the cliff-tops above the thundering Palliser Bay waves, Wharekauhau Country Estate and Farm is comprised of over 5,500 acres of pristine coastal farmland, bordered by crystal-clear rivers and native New Zealand forest. Situated on the southern coast of the North Island, this stunning property is one of New Zealand’s oldest Romney studs dating back to the 1800’s. Still being a working farm today, you will find varying breeds of sheep and cattle, with a few farm dogs thrown in there too.
Wharekauhau, meaning ‘place of knowledge’
in Maori, is just that. This property shares in the rich agricultural history for which New Zealand is world famous, with the friendly, knowledgeable staff taking an avid interest in their beautiful outdoor office.
Offering 10 impeccably decorated guest cottages and a private 3 bedroom house, Wharekauhau is the perfect place to unwind, curl up and recharge – all while staring out to sea. With mouth-watering cuisine, luxurious facilities and a multitude of activities on hand, you will never, ever want to leave.
