The Marlborough Lodge
For those looking for exceptional food and wine in a five star setting, look no further than the elegant and refined Malborough Lodge. On New Zealand’s South Island, this country estate, loved by travel publications worldwide, has made a name for itself as a must see location for gastronimical experiences that are unrivalled. The 16 acres of parkland create a retreat that offers peaceful seclusion so you can switch off from the pressures of modern life and just indulge. Formerly a Victorian Convent, its charming architecture has stood the test of time since 1901 and is today a collection of ten bedrooms over two stories. Balcony access overlooking the estate is a place to enjoy a morning coffee as the rising sun illuminates the landscape. Once you have taken time to awaken peacefully in your bedroom, explore the estate for daily activities that you can enjoy between the decadent dining that awaits. The Harvest restaurant is run by a team of chefs who know the origins of every ingredient in the kitchens and the perfect combinations of flavours to create dishes that are designed to make your mouth water. The seasonally changing cuisine is what draws guests back year after year, to taste the changing produce and how that effects the flavours. Dining is a experiential affair.
