Fodor's Review

For a luxurious farm stay and spa day, make the 18-km (11-mile) drive from Palmerston North to this 1,600-acre sheep-and-dairy farm, where you'll be hosted by a family that has worked the land for five generations; photos and artifacts relate their history. Indulge in a luxury spa treatment; relax by roaring stone fireplaces; lounge in the private garden; soak in the hot tub; or simply drink in the views, which extend across lawns and gardens and beyond farm paddocks to the forest-covered Ruahine Ranges. The estate’s two soothing suites have underfloor heating and high-quality linens; one has a whirlpool bath, the other a double shower. Dinner featuring fresh local produce and New Zealand wine can be prearranged. Tempting spa packages are available, too.
