Hawke's Bay, New Zealand
Right in the heart of New Zealand’s stunning countryside, The Farm at Cape Kidnappers resembles a French chateau with high wooden beams, creams, woods and antique furniture being a common theme throughout. Stone floors, large rugs and oversized, deep sofas make for an incredibly cosy setting and perfect for a winter getaway (or summer!).
There are many common areas in which to relax, including lounges, dining areas and ‘outdoor rooms’, complete with large open fires and stylish interior design. There are 22 cottage suites and a four-bedroom Owner’s Cottage which is the ideal solution for a group travelling together. All are fully-equipped with all the necessary mod-cons, ensuite bathrooms and lush furnishings.
Make the most of the extensive activities available on the resort. The prime attraction is Cape Kidnappers golf course which will challenge golfers of all levels. Hailed one of the greatest modern courses with some of the most stunning scenery around, this is will be a day to remember! There is also a Spa with 3 treatment rooms, massages, facials, pedicures and manicures all available.
Spend your days trying out clay pidgeon shooting, tour the farm and surroundings fully, walking trails, visiting the gannet colony, horse trekking, mountain biking and quad biking. Venture further afield for trout fishing, scenic helicopter flights, Maori heritage trails, hot air ballooning or paragliding. It is also possible to organize food and wine tasting courses, river rafting and white water rafting.
There is also an excellent restaurant, presided over by chef Tim Pickering who prides himself on his menu of classic English and French specialities, influenced by seasonal New Zealand cooking. The restaurant is smart in the evening, but expect top-quality food to match your surroundings.
