  • This was a truly wonderful place to stay

    This was a truly wonderful place to stay. The homestead was steeped in history containing so much beautiful antique furniture. The surrounding gardens were stunning beautiful and we liked feeding the toast to the friendly pig. The trip afterwards to Cape Paliiser was well worth doing - we saw all the seals swimming in the ocean including a massive elephant sea that swam in right up to the shore.

  • The manor is brimming with history, charm, and hospitality

    The manor is brimming with history, charm, and hospitality. Our room was very warm and there was always a roaring fire going in our dining/sitting room when we arrived back from hiking the Pinnacles or enjoying the vineyards of near-by Martinborough. Breakfast was delicious and we woke-up every morning looking forward to it. The surrounding farm and gardens is incredibly scenic and well worth a long morning/afternoon stroll to take it all in.

    My girlfriend and I had an awesome time staying, was super relaxing having the open fire in our own separate lounge. The afternoon tea and cooked breakfast were a great bonus.

    We stayed with our 6 month old baby and it was such a perfect overnight getaway from Wellington. The hospitality is exceptional and having the fire lit for us in the morning was so thoughtful. Thank you for a wonderful stay :)
