The Cottage comes with a fully equipped self-catering kitchen, but if you feel like being social, book in for dinner at the solar-powered Eco-Eatery in the Bamboo Lounge of Te Henga Studios' main building, designed by sustainable architect Graeme North, and have a shared meal with one of our happy hosts - or enjoy some quiet time, picking fresh veges from our organic gardens right outside the kitchen window, with fresh filtered water from the rain and spring.

As well as welcoming tourists and visitors to our heritage region, Te Henga Studios can also be booked for day, weekend or week long retreats for groups or individuals.

Founded on the principles of permaculture, creativity and wellbeing, we seek to create a space for both relaxation and inspiration.

For creatives, we have studios to suit all arts, performance, film, writing & photography projects. Join us for a movie night or jam session in the barn, or check out the legendary Bus Cafe Music nights every Friday on the beach throughout summer.

For those wanting to really unwind & regenerate, we have a yurt yoga studio as well as massage & hydrotherapy facilities on site.

Our permanent residents are skilled in many of the creative and healing arts, and are available to provide any services you may need.

We love our, ever-growing, family of animals. During your stay you will meet our: cat and a dog, chickens and roosters, goats and bees..

* Please note that cottage is a part of the Retreat Centre and, on the occasion of the centre being booked out, we might not be able to accomodate you on certain dates - if the other group books out the whole property.

  • Location of the property was great and easy to locate

    Location of the property was great and easy to locate. We felt that it could do with a bit of attention to the cleanliness e.g. the oven and the floors.. Also the level of noise say after 10 p.m. when we had to contend with the consistent strumming of someone learning a guitar . . . . ? We did find the bathroom facilities very adequate and clean with excellent water pressure.

  • We absolutely loved this place

    We absolutely loved this place. It's really silent and peaceful. We really had the feeling we were in our own home. Perfect for a peaceful weekend away.
