    Recapturing the gracious lifestyle of a bygone era, Wharekauhau Country Estate is a luxury lodge with award winning style situated on a five thousand acre working farm on the southeast coast of the North Island. Framed by the Rimutaka Ranges to the west and Palliser Bay to the east, the lodge is surrounded by ancient, native forest, spectacular rugged beaches, bountiful rivers and tranquil lakes. Dotted throughout the extensive grounds, each of the thirteen charming Cottage Suites offer magnificent ocean views with complete privacy and seclusion. The main lodge is modelled on the lines of an Edwardian country mansion with open wood burning fireplaces, mullioned windows and country style kitchen. With 5,000 acres of rolling farmland and native bush choices abound for walking, biking, horse riding and ATV adventures. Explore the historic property to see sheep dogs and the shearing shed at work. Discover the pleasures of local Martinborough wineries that produce Pinot Noir equal to anything Burgundy has on offer.
