Wharekauhau Country Estate

Wellington, New Zealand

Beautifully Rugged

“Heaven on Earth” is how one American traveler described Wharekauhau. And we couldn’t agree more. Located on the most southern part of North Island, Wharekauhau (pronounced “Far-E-Koho”) is a beauty-blend of wildly rugged coastline, dramatic sky and 5,500 pastoral acres. Home to one of New Zealand’s oldest (and still-working) sheep stations, days start with a locally sourced country breakfast before heading out to see the farm in action — Romney and Texel sheep roaming alongside Angus cattle. Relaxed Kiwi is the mantra – staff spend time getting to know guests, then immerse with them on horse (or quad) rides through ancient forests, wine-tastings in the nearby Wairarapa region, and visits out to the largest fur seal colony. Of course, there’s ample downtime in the property’s 13 tranquil cream-hued cottages – complete with sea views and oversized fireplaces – before heading to the lodge for a gourmet dinner perfectly paired with New Zealand wines.
