A cozy cottage in Wharekauhau, a 5,000-acre working sheep station in New Zealand and one of our Top 10 Romantic Hotels


North Island

Wharekauhau, a collection of New Zealand cottages with bay views
For many, a farm holiday might not sound like the height of romance, but those who have been to Wharekauhau know that agriculture and ardor do mix. At this 5,000-acre working sheep and cattle station overlooking Palliser Bay on the rugged southern tip of New Zealand's North Island, you can reinvigorate both your spirit and your commitment to your significant other. Surrounded by seemingly endless space, the thirteen cottage suites entice with fireplaces, double spa baths and sophisticated details by local artisans, including clay tiles and pebbled mosaics. While it may be tempting to stay in, you'll find plenty of reasons for a little PDA. You might spend a day out tasting boutique wines, take a stroll through the on-site fruit orchard or linger over the resort's signature "long lunch" before retiring with a drink in front of an open fire.
