Tara Retreat is a glamping and eco accommodation space.

We have a self-contained studio, a handcrafted cob cottage, a renovated caravan with its own covered deck , a house truck, and a glamping tent - all perfect spaces for enjoying a lovely local wine in the afternoon sun. Five couples can choose which spot suits them best (or draw straws) - places for kids too - studio loft and tent space.

It is the perfect place for a group to have a weekend away together in Magical Mangawhai - you will have the whole retreat to roam around in and your party can meet up in the fully-equipped outdoor kitchen for a BBQ, listen to some tunes and dine al fresco together!

The property also boasts a yoga studio, a toilet and shower block at the bottom of the orchard and a meditation platform surrounded by flowers.

We can also offer a yoga class tailored just for your group, onsite massage and a Naturopath/herbalist & apothecary.

Come and make yourselves at home.

  • Tara Retreat was conveniently located for us on the road north

    Tara Retreat was conveniently located for us on the road north. The cottage itself was quirky and cosy with the heater left on for our arrival and the bed was seriously comfortable.

  • I want to start off by saying the location was splendid, situated...

    I want to start off by saying the location was splendid, situated in the quiet of the country. It was not far from Mangawhai. Our first impression was the smell of the cottage-very damp. We felt the cottage was tired looking and in need of an update. The bathroom/shower area needs to be modernised with new facilities. The kitchen area as well needs some attention. The bed was very comfortable. We choose this place because of the photographs & the ratings displayed on the website. :-(

    Nice cottage with a great deck and grass area. It was ideal for us and our dogs for a short stay.
