Name: The Farm At Cape Kidnappers
Location: New Zealand
The Farm At Cape Kidnappers wilderness retreat is located in Hawke’s Bay, Near Napier on New Zealand’s North Island.
New Zealand’s temperate Hawke’s Bay region on the west coast of North Island is criss-crossed with apple orchards, kiwi fruit plantations and wineries. This peaceable, agricultural landscape contrasts with the serrated, hook-like promontory of Cape Kidnappers, which throngs with Australasian gannets, their bright gold heads standing out boldly from the shingle beaches where they nest.
Keen golfers will enjoy staying at The Farm, where the rusticity of a working estate meets modern, sleek interiors in a cluster of lodges and suites overlooking Cape Kidnappers’ championship golf course. The Farm has even been known to offer residential golf workshops in the summer months.
Golf aside, staying here is about embracing the wilderness. Borrow a mountain bike to explore one of the surrounding trails, hike the clifftops, or join Farm staff on a Kiwi Discovery Walk, meeting these endangered birds and contributing towards their preservation.
