We are set in an historic and restored 1886 Heritage New Zealand villa. We have only 3 ensuite guest rooms, chances are if we are not busy you will have the whole place to yourself! Furnished with stunning Victorian antiques, English wallpapers, and fine fabrics, our aim is to make you feel special. We offer full cooked breakfast served by candlelight in the breakfast room, with a roaring fire in winter, or out on the terrace. All double rooms have modern en-suites, some with baths. With a well stocked honesty bar and complimentary fine ports , relax in the acre of gardens or curl up in the snug and watch a movie. We have great local knowledge and can recommend places to visit. We can make a grazing platter for you, and cater for gluten free and vegan if required. We can host your wedding party, and often get booked as a whole house for the in-laws looking for something upmarket, or for the bride and groom and their friends. We can also host writers clubs, book clubs, gardening groups, and small events. We have recently hosted 70th dinner parties for 16 people, where others staying locally joined the function, and can cost up a number of scenarios. Pheasant Lodge finished its renovations in August 2002 and has been open since September 2022 with 5 star reviews. We built it for people to have fun, enjoy this wonderful historic property with friends and family, and for an excuse for me buy nice antiques and single malt whiskies for me, so far its working!
