Set within acres of vineyards, farmland and countryside, the view is what makes this luxury lodge so very special. As you can well imagine, it proves a fantastic spot from which to explore New Zealand’s famed food and wine country, with the wide, private verandahs looking out over pristine lawns and manicured gardens if simply relaxing and enjoying the vista is more up your street.
A maximum of just 12 guests are accommodated in this Small Luxury Hotels of the World property yet with the emphasis on space you’ll feel like you’ve got the place to yourself. In winter months you’ll enjoy reading in the cosy drawing room with its open fire, with dinner all year served in the elegant dining room. The menu very much celebrates Hawke’s Bay, with locally produced ingredients and wines put together in a complementary fashion throughout the dining service.
Accommodation options do vary, with The Cottage a particularly romantic, and very secluded hideaway, from which to enjoy the best of New Zealand. The Greenhill Lodge swimming pool with elegant seating area and log fireplace is the perfect place to unwind after a day spent exploring.
All in all, it makes for a very special secluded escape and a must-visit on your tour of New Zealand.
