Wharekauhau Country Estate

94 Editor Rating
Scale of 90-100

Historic farm/working sheep station (pronounced “Forry-ko-ho”) on 5,500 acres in spectacular surroundings at the southern tip of the North Island. Emerald-green pasturelands climb through lake-dotted forests into rugged mountains. Thirteen delightful white-stucco cottages feature gas fireplaces, generous sitting areas and lavish baths with heated marble floors. The stately Edwardian-style manor contains a grand living room and dining hall with baronial stone fireplaces. Gym, 75-foot indoor pool, tennis court and spa treatment room. This is a remarkably comfortable sanctuary capturing the pastoral spirit of old New Zealand. The resort can be reached from Wellington by prearranged helicopter (10 minutes) or car (two hours).
